Voter Registration Numbers by Congressional District

With absentee ballots on their way out this week, I thought it might be useful to take a quick look at the voter registration numbers as of September in Colorado, organized by congressional district.

Did you know, for example, that there are more registered Republicans in CD-6 than anywhere else in Colorado – including the Republican stronghold of CD-5? In fact, CD-5 is just slightly more Republican, in terms of overall percentages, than is CD-6.

Also interesting to note is that CD-7 is the second-most Democratic district in the state, according to percentages.
