Slow Tally

When the polls close next Tuesday, election officials say it could take an exceptionally long time to tally the results.

Denver Election Commission spokesman Alton Dillard says officials are already warning candidates and political parties that counting the votes is going to be slow work.

Clerks up and down the Front Range say the longest ballot in 100 years, plus new voting machines, thousands of absentee ballots and close races all promise plenty of pitfalls for elections teams.

Larimer County elections chief Scott Doyle says election night could turn into a nightmare.
