In seven days mail-back voting will begin, and in ten days upwards of 600,000 Coloradans could be done with the election, except for hearing the results November 4.
The new voting system, enacted by Democrats in the 2013 legislature, could raise voter turnout well beyond the two million votes expected.
As of October 1, 2013, there are 3.6 million Colorado voters. The entire 3.6 million registered voter base will receive a ballot on or about October 15. In 2010, 1.8 million voted and 2.5 million were active voters. Currently, 2.9 million are active.
