DENVER - More than 2 million Coloradoans have now cast their ballots in the 2012 general election.
A slim majority of those voters continue to be registered Republicans, according to updated data from the Secretary of State. 719,597 Republicans have cast their ballots, compared to 677,473 Democrats and 588,430 unaffiliated voters.
The data, posted by Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler's office at 5:10 p.m., continues a trend that began last week during early voting. On Oct. 26, early voter turnout showed Republicans outpacing Democrats by about 2.5 percent.
- ACN: 3,382
- AEL: 2,307
- DEM: 677,473
- GRN: 4,246
- LBR: 12,086
- REP: 719,597

"We'll probably break all records as far as voter turnout this year," Gessler predicted on Oct. 26. "We have 400,000 more registered voters than we did four years ago. That's a 13 percent increase. That's a big jump."
