This has been an election year like no other. Colorado, like the rest of the nation, held its general election Tuesday, and Democrats saw gains and came out the winners. Tuesday’s results largely represent a continuation of the blue wave that began in 2018, in which Democrats gained control of all four statewide offices for the first time in decades and flipped control of the state Senate. Democrats earned one seat in the upper chamber to increase their majority to 20-15 and maintained their 41-24 supermajority in the state House, proving that there are only a few competitive districts remaining on the eve of state and federal redistricting.
Incredibly, Colorado surpassed its 2016 record-setting presidential election voter turnout rate of 86.7% with an astonishing 3,303,265 ballots cast. The most votes were cast by unaffiliated voters—now the largest voting group in Colorado—followed by Democrats, then Republicans. Of the ballots tallied so far, unaffiliated voters dominated by casting 1,555,687 ballots, with Democrats coming in at 1,139,084 and Republicans at 1,038,634.
