Voters over age 60 are casting their ballots at a fast clip, accounting for almost 60 percent of the total ballots returned through Thursday morning, according to Colorado election officials. With 12 days until Election Day — and just five days until the U.S. Postal Service and Colorado secretary of state's office recommend mailing ballots to ensure they're received in time — county clerks reported receiving 236,367 ballots. That total includes ballots received at 24-hour drop-off locations around the state, those cast at vote centers and those sent by mail.
