Last updated 11/4/2020 at 3:25pm
The first round of election results released by the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's office shows Republicans leading in races of interest to the Fountain Valley area among local voters. Statewide races, however, are leaning Democrat. See vote totals and percentages below.
The Colorado Secretary of State's Office shows former Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) leading incumbent Sen. Cory Gardner (R) 53.86 percent to 44.04 percent to represent the state in the U.S. Senate.
Statewide, presidential candidate Joe Biden received 55.79 percent of the vote, winning Colorado. In El Paso County, President Donald Trump received over 52 percent, but less than 42 percent statewide.
Incumbent Congressman Doug Lamborn (R), Fifth Congressional District, is leading with 57.25 percent of votes over Jillian Freeland (D). This position encompasses areas in Chaffee, El Paso, Fremont, Park and Teller counties.
State Senator for District 12 Bob Gardner (R) is leading challenger Electra Johnson (D); while Mary Bradfield (R) is ahead of Liz Rosenbaum (D) in the race for state House District 21.
Longinos Gonzalez Jr., the current commissioner for El Paso County District 4, is leading against challenger Andre Vigil.
Carrie Geitner and Stan Lee VanderWerf, both Republicans, also won their races for County districts 2 and 3, respectively. Geitner will replace Mark Waller, who ran unsuccessfully for District Attorney in the June primary. VanderWerf was the incumbent.
Michael Allen, who defeated Waller in the primary campaign to lead the 4th Judicial District, was already the only candidate for the job in the General Election. This week’s vote was a formality in confirming him to the slot.
Periodic results will be released as ballot processing and tabulation continues. Results will not be final until all overseas and military ballots are accounted for, as well as any with signature or identification issues. Lastly, a bipartisan canvass board has until Nov. 25 to verify all results.
