The Colorado Secretary of State's office expects more people to register to vote this election cycle because of the closely watched Presidential race. As Bente Birkeland reports, voters have until midnight on Tuesday to register to vote online.
Coloradans across the state turned out for watch parties last night, as President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Governor squared off in their first debate at the University of Denver. Statehouse reporter Bente Birkeland attended a watch party in downtown Denver. She talked to fellow reporters and voters about the debate’s impact and whether it lived up to expectations.
This is the debate between Republican incumbent Don Coram and Democratic challenger Tammie Theis, candidates for House district 58, which encompasses Montrose, San Miguel, Dolores and Montezuma counties. Club 20 Chairman Steve Reynolds moderated the debate. Each candidate was given three minutes for opening remarks, and Don Coram was first.
A new survey shows that politicians in both parties may be missing the mark when it comes to courting the state’s crucial Hispanic voting bloc – which grew by 41 percent over the last decade. Bente Birkeland has more from the state capitol.
