Colorado election official: No final results on Tuesday

Aspen, CO Colorado

DENVER ” The polls are now open in Colorado for slightly more than one-half of the state’s registered voters who didn’t cast their ballots by mail or at an early-voting location.

Election officials say nearly 1.6 million out of 3.2 million Colorado voters have cast early ballots.

Still, don’t expect final results Tuesday.

Denver Election Commission spokesman Alton Dillard says the “days of having your close to final results by 10 p.m. are over.” He says officials have tried to make it clear from early on that workers will still be counting ballots into Wednesday, and that still holds true.

Dillard says the process to tabulate paper and mail-in ballots is time consuming.

Larimer and Jefferson county officials say they’ve finished counting all mail-in ballots received by 5 p.m. Monday.
