About the format of this abstract

Results contained in the abstract

This publication contains the official certified results for the 2011 Odd-Year, 2012 Primary, and 2012 General Elections for all candidates, ballot issues, and ballot questions.

Results & officer information reported by the counties

The election results in this abstract were obtained from each of Colorado's 64 counties. These results are more accurate than the compiled and totaled returns reported on the Secretary of State's website immediately after the election because they account for any miscalculations in the totals initially reported by each county.

Judicial officer information

Judicial officer information, including dates of oath and terms of office, was provided by the Office of the State Court Administrator.

Total registered voters, total ballots cast, & turnout

The number of registered voters eligible to vote in each contest is reported in the column titled “Registered Voters.” The column titled “Ballots Cast” reflects the number of voters who actually voted in a particular contest, as reported by each county. The column titled “Turnout %” reflects the percentage of registered voters who cast a ballot in each contest.

Sample statewide results

For every statewide contest, such as President, the results are reported by each of the 64 counties listed in alphabetical order, with a statewide total at the bottom. Candidates are listed in the order they appeared on the ballot. For example:
