High turnouts reported in early voting for Colorado recall following unpopular anti gun rights legislationPosted: September 6, 2013
High turnouts were reported Thursday in Colorado Springs as voters made their way to election centers during the first day of early voting in the recall election of State Senate President John Morse.
The Colorado vote is being closely watched around the country as a litmus test of how the public responds to stricter gun measures in swing states.
If Morse is recalled, Republican Bernie Herpin, the only candidate in on the same ballot, will succeed him. If Giron is recalled, she would be replaced by Republican George Rivera in the state Senate.
Early voting in Giron’s hometown began last Friday. As of Wednesday night, more than 3,500 people had already voted. Election officials told multiple members of the media that there were “surprisingly high turnouts,” in early voting.Fox News – “High turnouts reported in early voting for Colorado recall, amid gun bill fallout”
