Secretary of State: Ballots trickle in for June 28 primary

DENVER, June 21, 2016 -- Here's the latest tally from county clerks of mail ballots received and in-person voting for the primary election, which is one week from today:

Democrats -- Ballots sent: 986,252; Ballots returned: 145,572; Percent: 14.76%

Republicans -- Ballots sent: 994,450;  Ballots returned: 151,650; Percent: 15.24%

The county-by-county chart included in this release reflects the number of ballots received by the counties, even if the ballots are waiting to be reviewed by election judges. The figures were updated at 7:55 this morning.

Ballots are only going out to Republicans and Democrats. Unaffiliated voters can participate in the primary by affiliating with either party through 7 p.m. Election Day.

The only contested statewide race is the GOP primary for U.S. Senate where five Republicans are vying for the chance to unseat Democrat Michael Bennet in November. Also on the ballot are races for seven congressional districts, three Board of Education seats, three University of Colorado regent seats, 18 of 35 Senate seats, all 65 House seats, all 22 district attorney offices and assorted county commissioner races.
