Referenda C&D brought out the voters

Conventional wisdom going into this year’s elections said that a large turnout would lead to C & D passing. Well, there was a record-large turnout at the polls this year! “Nearly half of the state’s registered voters cast ballots in this month’s election, setting a new record for an odd-year election. The official turnout for the Nov. 1 election was 49.85 percent, breaking the record of 47.25 percent set in 2003, Secretary of State Gigi Dennis said Monday.”

Of course, only C passed, so conventional wisdom was only partially correct. Still, it’s good to see so many Coloradoans get out to the polls.
