County voting totals for presidential primary final


Last updated 3/25/2020 at 6:45am

Final official results for the March 3 Presidential Primary in El Paso County only.

The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's Office has completed the official Canvass of the 2020 Presidential Primary Election.

"We are extremely pleased with the efficiency, accuracy and organization of our election process," said Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman. "This was the first Presidential Primary Election conducted in 20 years, and the turnout was substantially higher than our original projection. I am very appreciative of the efforts of our Elections team, judges, and all staff members involved in this unprecedented election."

Final official results include additional ballots from military and overseas voters, and ballots that were counted after ID, signature, or other issues were properly resolved.

Prior to the canvass, the Clerk's Office also completed and passed its fifth post-election Risk Limiting Audit. Implemented by the Secretary of State's Office in 2017, this sophisticated post-election audit allows officials to compare a sample of paper ballots against digital tallies to verify results were tabulated correctly. Due to the high level of statistical probability, this audit confirms election results have not been manipulated and reassures a level of confidence in testing for election results.
