Colorado could end up delaying the results of the November elections.

There are legal challenges over provisional ballots, a proposal to split Colorado's nine electoral votes and new rules at the polls. Not to mention the 6,000 felons on the voting rolls.

Those and other problems might delay election results in Colorado---the state is being watched closely because it could help decide the presidential race and which party controls the Senate.

State Republican and Democratic officials have mobilized dozens of attorneys to monitor the election. Observers will be posted around the more than three-thousand precincts statewide.

State GOP chairman Ted Halaby says Republicans are thinking ahead on a contingency plan. Democratic Party chairman Chris Gates says his party has had no discussions so far on what legal challenges might be pursued.
