It was not a presidential election, but in some respects the 2014 General Election resembled one.  There were many key races, including Governor and U.S. Senate, which created enormous emotion and oft times contentious partisanship from the electorate, political parties and candidates.  The issues on the ballot also produced strong opinions from supporters and opponents alike.  And, this was the first General Election conducted as an all-mail ballot. 

Against this backdrop, our Election Department worked hard to ensure the election process was efficient, transparent and accurate.  Their goal was to guarantee citizens could participate in one of the most cherished rights of our democracy – the right to vote.  We appreciate the professionalism and earnest endeavors of our Election staff, temporary employees and judges who did such a fine job serving voters and guaranteeing the election process was open and fair.

Thanks also to the countless individuals, businesses and governments that offered support and cooperation to our office.  With their assistance, we were able to establish 25 Voter Service and Polling Centers and ballot drop-off boxes, including 12 that were available 24/7. The facilities were strategically located throughout the county, giving voters convenient access and in general being within 10 minutes of 96% of voters.

And finally, many thanks to you, the voter, who demonstrated the strength of the American electoral system which gives citizens the opportunity to express their voice at the ballot box and determine the course of our government. 

It is time now to move forward, work together and ensure the continued success of the State of Colorado and its residents.  Thank you again to all for solidifying the integrity of the 2014 General Election.
