Dems outvoting GOP in early recall totals
Democrats are out-voting Republicans in the recall election of state Sen. Angela Giron, D-Pueblo, by nearly a 3-to-1 margin, according to voter tallies after the first three days of early voting.
Pueblo County Clerk Gilbert “Bo” Ortiz said that 2,690 voters had cast ballots in the Sept. 10 special election as of 3 p.m. Tuesday.
At that time, 1,668 Democrats had voted in the special election compared with 599 Republicans. The remaining 423 votes came from independents and minor party voters.
Pueblo voters began voting last Friday in the recall election that is focused solely on Giron’s Senate District 3.
That district has a majority of Democratic voters.
Early voting will continue Wednesday at the county’s election office, 720 N. Main St., from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Thursday, however, Ortiz will open an additional 10 voting locations around the city and they will be open every day until the special election ends at 7 p.m. Sept. 10.
The daily voting reports are being tracked by both the Giron committee, Pueblo United for Angela, as well as the recall committee, Pueblo Freedom and Rights.
Ortiz is reminding voters to bring their yellow voter information cards to whatever polling center they choose. They should also check to confirm their registration. That can be done on-line at pueblovotes.com.
Some voters from outside Senate District 3 have come to the elections office to vote, only to find they do not live in the district.
