DENVER (AP) – A sure sign Colorado's elections are down to the wire: both parties are quietly making plans for possible recounts.
Colorado has a neck-and-neck senate race, a three-way governor's race and at least three house races where party control could flip.
With polls showing some contests within margins of error, candidates and ballot counters are readying for an election day that could take weeks to sort out.
Campaigns know that the morning after a close race is no time to start figuring out how to handle a recount. The parties say they have lawyers on standby now for any election problems or close races.
