All the ballots from Tuesday's election are now counted in Pueblo County.

There were still a couple of thousand left Tuesday night when County Clerk Gilbert Ortiz called it quits for the evening, telling 11 News his staff was tired, so he sent them home to rest in order to avoid mistakes.

Ortiz says that part of the reason his staff couldn't finish counting Tuesday night was due to record-setting turnout: 47 percent of the county turned out to vote. About 15 percent of those ballots came in the last two days.

The final unofficial totals are posted on kktv.com under "Election Results" on our home page.
