    Washington Post is reporting that Republican turnout appears to be much higher than Democrat turnout. Too bad they couldn't report based on the recall views instead of party lines. I'm sure there are quite a few gun owning democrats out there that are miffed and are voting their conscience.

    I hope the recall is successful and I hope we get an after action report from some THR members.

    It's funny how what started as a grassroots campaign ballooned into this national coverage with the big players involved. Everyone needs to remember this was started by regular folks and regardless how much money is thrown around, the voters are the only ones who make a difference in the end.

    Hopefully some other recall efforts will surface after this regardless of the outcome.

    I lived in CO for a brief time in the early 60's. I'd love to visit it again in 9 years when I tour the remaining free states after my retirement.

    Show up to vote, call on your gun owning friends to do the same, and keep Freedom alive!

    What's the best case result here? Is the vote for recalling the politicians themselves, to remove them from office?

    I'm just confused about what the actual goal of the vote is.

    Yes, a recall vote will remove them from office.

    I would think Morse is the more important of the two to remove from office because he holds the more influential office, but the big prize would be to remove both Morse and Giron from their seats because of their votes on gun prohibition in CO.

    Can we get a recall vote going for the entire Obama administration as well?

    I sure hope this recall works though they seldom do. It would be good to send a message to politicians all over the country that they need to vote the way their constituents want rather than how outside money wants or, realistically, how their heart wants. They are elected to carry out the will of the people they represent and not their own political agendas nor those of some nutjob in NYC.

    The latest update from the Denver Post Online does not seem to show actual voted results, but talks about percentages of Dems/Reps and early voting.
    Hopefully, their appearance of down-playing at this point is indicative of their deep concern, as most medial outlets would rather the recall fail.
    I pray that is passes, and with a landslide. Thus it may give us here in California resolve to start the process to get reparations for decades of civil rights violations.

    You folks from outside of Colorado would be amazed listening to the lies and nonsense in the no recall ads. Comical really. They don't mention anything Morse has done, or why he should stay in office. They only provide wild and obviously crazy accusations about the alternative candidates. It is very hard to believe that anyone with even half a brain would believe these ads.

    Looks like El Paso county (Morse) preliminary results are:

    Yes: 52.18%
    No: 47.82%

    I also read that Pueblo county polls stayed open until 7:15 due to long lines.

    Early turnout shows Morse still at 52% yes/47% no, with Giron at 31% yes / 68.9% no.

    Anyone who has lived in Pueblo (myself included) will understand why Giron has a clear advantage in this one, as expected IMO.

    Still have my fingers crossed Morse's turns out the way it is. Regardless, fantastic effort everyone. Thank you for your support!

    So far, so good! One of the anti-gun Democrats is sinking and there is another to
    go. I hope both of them bite the dust and Bloomberg has just wasted all of the cash
    he spent sticking his nose in this election.

    Only one precinct in Pueblo county has reported. Current count is 215 Yes, 477 No. Not exactly enough votes to make a guess yet.

    Don't count your chickens just yet. But I hope this holds, as ousting the Senate president is a pretty big deal.
