Colorado is expecting a very high turnout for the November election. In addition to heightened interest in the presidential race, we will be electing a new Senator to replace retiring Republican Senator Wayne Allard, and there are 18 ballot initiatives. Governor Bill Ritter and others are recommending voters obtain a mail-in ballot. From the Rocky Mountain News:
Record turnout is expected for the Nov. 4 election, and the ballot will be the longest in decades. A record number of voters cast ballots by mail for the August primary, and officials hope even more choose this option this fall to make counting faster.
