There’s still time to get in on the action.

The Colorado Secretary of State has sent nearly 2 million ballots to registered Republicans and Democrats for the June 28 primary, where important races include the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate and the Denver District Attorney’s race.

Some 240,000 people have already returned their ballots, according to information released today by the Secretary of State. They represent about 12 percent of the ballots currently in circulation. Republicans have a slight edge in participation, with 121,183 ballots returned out of a total of 994,450 sent out, compared to 119,614 out of 986,252 for Democrats.

The Republican voters have the only statewide race in contention this year. There are also seven congressional districts, three Board of Regents seats, three Board of Education seats and a whole slew of state legislative and county commissioner races.
