Early Voting Begins

By  | 

Early voting began Monday in most Colorado counties for the state's primary election.

Some political observers expect a higher than normal turnout in next week's election because of interest in the U.S. Senate race and campaigns to replace term-limited district attorneys. It's also a
presidential year, and that usually tends to get more people to the polls.

Denver City Councilwoman Rosemary Rodriguez says the number of people trying to get other young people to vote this year is dramatic. But Republican consultant Katy Atkinson says people only feel a duty to vote in the general election, not in the primary.

Unaffiliated voters can cast ballots in the primary only if they register to vote with one of the parties.
