In primary voting that concludes today, for the first time in history, Colorado’s 1.2 million unaffiliated voters will be able to cast a ballot in a Republican or Democrat primary. Ballots were mailed to all voters, affiliated and unaffiliated alike, on June 4. Those 1.2 million “active unaffiliated voters” received both Republican and Democrat ballots, and they could choose one or the other. For the first time they have an equal vote with long-time party loyalists in the selection of a party’s nominees.
