Denver (AP) Thousands of people who repeatedly failed to cast ballots in previous elections have been purged from the voter rolls in Colorado counties. The Secretary of State's Office says that between November and now, the number of registered voters on county rolls has dropped from a record 3.1 million to 2.8 million.
The drop in voters considered active, those who voted in
November or recently registered, is down almost 75,000. The clerks also removed the names of voters who moved out of state or are ineligible because they're in prison or on parole.
Republicans remain the largest political party in the state with 1.1 million, followed by unaffiliated voters with 1 million voters and Democrats with about 948,000.
