Colorado starts to vote in Super Tuesday presidential primary
Ballots for Colorado's March 5 presidential primary will begin arriving in the mail as soon as Monday.
The intrigue: The Democratic and Republican contests feature a lengthy list of candidates beyond the frontrunners, President Biden and former President Trump.
Details: On the Democratic side, voters can pick "noncommitted delegate" instead of Biden if they have no preference in the race. The state party requested the option.
- U.S. Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota is among the eight named contenders on the Democratic ballot, most of whom are unknowns.
- The order of the candidate's names is randomly drawn, and Biden's name is second from the bottom.
- Trump's name is last on the GOP ballot, even though his candidacy is being challenged by Colorado in the U.S. Supreme Court.
Be smart: Registered Democrats and Republicans will receive ballots for their respective primaries, while unaffiliated voters will receive both with the option to return one of them.
Of note: In-person voting begins Feb. 20 and 16 voting centers in Denver will open Feb. 26. All ballots are due by 7pm March 5.
