State significance

At the top of the ticket is the state's U.S. Senate race, where Democratic incumbent Michael Bennet is facing Republican nominee Joe O'Dea. Polls show O'Dea, more moderate than many of the GOP's candidates this cycle, faces an uphill battle in unseating Bennet, according to FiveThirtyEight.

O'Dea has received support from former President George W. Bush and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, the latter's endorsement roiling former President Donald Trump. Trump called DeSantis' support of O'Dea "big mistake."

O'Dea has said Trump shouldn't run again in 2024 and has also broken with most of his party on abortion access. O'Dea said he supported Roe v. Wade, though he opposes abortions after 20 weeks except in cases of rape, incest or to protect the life of the mother.

Colorado is also one of the 36 states voting on a gubernatorial contest this year. Incumbent Jared Polis, a Democrat, is running for reelection. He's up against Republican candidate Heidi Ganahl, who would be the first female governor of Colorado if elected. Ganahl's running mate, Danny Moore, is an election denier and was removed from his position as the state's Independent Redistricting Commission chair because of his false comments about the 2020 race.

Counties are colored red or blue when the percent of expected vote reporting reaches a set threshold. This threshold varies by state and is based on patterns of past vote reporting and expectations about how the vote will report this year.
