The Colorado vote to recall two state Democrats who angered voters earlier this year when they helped pass draconian gun control bills, is in full swing with long lines and what elections officials called “surprisingly high turnouts”.
Yesterday marked the first day of voting in the recall election of Democrat State Senator John Morse as more than 3,500 voters from his El Paso County Senate district headed to the polls. Polls in Pueblo Democrat Senator Angela Giron’s recall opened, last week.
The Denver Post reports:
Funded in part by the National Rifle Association and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose group Mayors Against Illegal Guns played a pivotal role in the gun legislation that passed in the past session, both sides of the recalls have been furiously working these final days to get supporters to the polls.
If Morse and Giron are recalled, two Republican candidates, Bernie Herpin of El Paso County and George Rivera of Pueblo, will take their place in the state Senate.
Conservative blog, Revealing Politics has been on the ground with cameras everywhere. If there is voter fraud going on in Colorado – they are capturing it.
Just before the end of the first day of early voting in the Colorado recall election of Senate President John Morse, some college age students showed up with 10 ballots in hand, each.

Two REALLY EXCITED recall voters were so excited to be at the polls they backed into each other.
