So far, Gunnison County voters have again shown overwhelming support for Democratic candidates with about a sixty percent block of solid Democratic voters across all races.
In the two races for seats on the Gunnison Board of County Commissioners, incumbent Democrats Jonathon Houck and Liz Smith will both retain their seats.
When it comes to ballot initiatives, voters tended towards more liberal positions by approving a paid family leave program and an initiative to elect the president by popular vote. They also voted down a proposition to restrict access to abortion.
However, as of midday Wednesday, an initiative to reduce Colorado’s income tax is essentially tied at about 5,200 votes on either side. Gunnison County voters have also appeared to vote down an initiative to re-introduce the gray wolf to Colorado’s Western Slope.
