DENVER (AP) - Colorado elections officials rolled out the first look at who's voting early this election - and so far more Republicans are voting than Democrats.
The Colorado Secretary of State reports that about 195,000 voters have already cast ballots as of Wednesday afternoon. That figure includes mail-in and absentee voters who have already returned ballots, along with people who have voted in person at early balloting locations.
So far, just over 71,000 Democrats have voted, and about 81,500 Republicans have voted. About 41,000 unaffiliated voters have already cast ballots. The GOP has an advantage in the overall number of active voters, with almost 63,000 more registered Republicans than registered Democrats.
