Colorado officials say voting systems back online after outage

Talk about your early voting.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Even though Clinton's rally in Pembroke Pines was cut short Saturday due to heavy rain, she visited two early voting locations near Miami, and her effort to churn out early voters might be working.

Polls in Colorado will be closing tonight at 9 pm EST, and, since Colorado is a swing state, people will be watching closely to see which way the vote goes.

Spurred on by the frenzied campaign put on by both major candidates, almost half of Florida's 12.9 million registered voters had already cast ballots even before the final push that came on Sunday.

Forcing politicians to moderate their stances by having to appeal to a broader pool of voters has been the motivation behind electoral changes in other states.

This year, the first all mail-in year, Democrats were up early, and now Republicans have surged to take a 7,000-ballot lead. That's good news for Trump, whose path to the White House runs through the Sunshine State.

Colorado Democrats filed a lawsuit in Denver District Court late this afternoon against Secretary of State Wayne Williams, whose office runs the voter registration system. Since October 17, Ballots have been mailed out to registered voters.

Nearly 2.2 million ballots have been submitted in Colorado.

More Republicans have turned in their ballots than Democrats so far. The breakdown looks like this: 35.2 percent Republican, 34.8 percent Democrat and 28.5 percent unaffiliated.

Health insurers spent more than $3 million to fight the proposal.

Democrats are now seeking a two-hour extension, Bartles tweeted.

Astoundingly, the state's Republican Party issued a press release Monday bragging about suppressing non-white early voting. But Democratic turnout picked up steam, and they're now ahead by a little more than 7,200 votes, according to the latest numbers from the Florida Department of State.

"If taxpaying citizens are going to pay for the cost of elections, they should have a say in them as well", said Jessie Koerner, spokeswoman for Let Colorado Vote, the group backing the measures. "I think it has settled into a 3 or 4-point face in her favor", he said. Georgia doesn't break down ballots by party affiliation so the exact totals aren't known. And Denver and Boulder counties, which typically count overnight anyway because of higher-than-average Election Day turnout, both expect the same to recur again.

The Coloradoan will provide any updates on polling centers here, throughout the day. However, the measure would require a three-quarters vote of a party's state central committee to approve such a move.

But most people didn't want them, said Amanda Polson, the elections director.
