The latest early-vote tallies (pdf
) released this afternoon by the Colorado secretary of state show Republican holding onto a steady lead. The Halloween release reported that registered Republicans have cast 38.2 percent of 1,150,698 votes collected so far in the state. Democrats have cast 35.2 percent and unaffiliated voters 25.6 percent. Today's total percentages are roughly unchanged from Tuesday's but, with less than a week to Election Day, less-partisan unaffiliated voters-- the largest voting bloc in the state-- seem to be beginning to turn out in greater numbers.
