kaine's home lean democratic. the crucial states to watch tonight florida, north carolina, and ohio. they will be closing by 6:00 our type. these states are key to a donald trump victory. the map favors hillary clinton, but if trump takes these states, colorado could be pivotal. and as we mentioned, our polls close at 7 and turnout is key. we have seen long lines at polling centers in the denver area, the the smoky hill library and arapahoe county, their ballots. we spoke to voters about the importance of participating in the election. >> and if we don't vote, we have no right to complain. if, if whatever they're doing is wrong -- . >> the power of voting is to really get to not only just basically voice your thoughts about who is best fit to lead the country or meet our needs, but voting takes a big affect on a global scale.
afternoon, 2.4 million ballots have been returned to colorado. i'll be back in a few moments with a look at the big ballot issues this area in colorado. and at 4:30, we're going to look at the key senate races that could decide the balance of power in the u.s. senate and which counties could decide the presidential election here in colorado. talking about 2.4 million already returned. that is a huge turnout. >> that is right. still about a million out there, though. >> yeah. >> and get to the state democrats and republicans are ready to throw parties tonight. we have to wait and see who has the most to celebrate. >> we were at both headquarters and fanned out all over the state from carbondale to colorado springs and denver. we start with kathy walsh in green woodvilleage tonight. >> reporter: the folks here, karen -- greenwoodvillage tonight. >> reporter: the folks here tonight, they will watch the culmination of the ugliest presidential race in recent
he was able to bring out huge crowds in colorado, even during a broncos game. his course, supporters, of course, white men, hard-working white men, working-class people who are not a basket of deplorables but people who have been forgotten and they want ump to go to washington and drain the swamp. well, the gop tonight will also be looking at the balance of power both in washington and the state. there are six vulnerable positions and they feel like they will hold on to the house; how far, there are two races in -- however, there are two races here in colorado, scott tipton and mike kaufman. they're very tight and they'll watch those closely. in the state, the gop is clinging to a one-vote major in the senate. there is fear that if they lose the senate, then the democrats take over all of the lawo
todd. you have more on the state races? >> reporter: yeah, kathy. we talked to steve house, the chairman for the state gop and some people around these headquarters are saying they looking at two areas. first pueblo county and adams county. not just for the presidential election but down into some of these state races. adams county home to one of three hotly contested state senate races. some other ones here in the denver metro area. that is really what some of thex headquarters are going -- experts here in the headquarters are going to keep their eyes on. >> thank you, jeff. karen morfitt is in colorado springs with the darrell glen campaign. he is trying to unseat senator michael bennett, karen? >> reporter: kathy, this is where glenn will be spending his night watching as those results start to pull in. he is staying close to home here in colorado springs where he has been a city councilman
commissioner. now, glen is the underdog in this race, again, going up against senator michael bennett. glen, a retired lieutenant colonel said if elected, he will put national security first and promised to reduce regulations like those in the clean power plant, and he said he wants to repeel obama care, 40% he cans in colorado. a recent cbs poll she glen closing the gap and training bennett slightly, 41% to 46%, kathy. it will be an interesting race to watch. back to you. >> all right, karen morfitt, live reporting in colorado springs. colorado state democrats are equally ready to celebrate a win. >> tom muston is checking in from the democratic headquarters in downtown denver, tom. >> reporter: jim, i can tell you there is a feeling of confidence here by the democrats. they are confident that when
clinton will be the next president, signifying four more years of democratic leadership. donald trump has a big say in that. the past few days, he surged in the polls and some national polls have him trailing by 4 percentage points and this can go to the wire. again, we find colorado as a key swing state and there are several voter initiatives and key races that we have been talking about that can have a big say in the balance of power here. watching senator michael bennett, the democrat against darrell glen, as we mentioned, a republican. we talked to glen's turnout that is in their favor, very much. and we'll watch the sixth congressional race between motorcycle kaufman the republican and state senator morgan carol. a lot of money has been dumped into this race and that can go a long way here. we're bringing the seats and sounds from inside democratic headquarters throughout the evening. not a lot is going on. throughout the evening, we'll have the colleague stan bush here as well. let's go to stan with the
democrats feel confident now. a year ago, michael bennett was seen as the most vulnerable encompany bent senator in the ep-- incumbent senator in the u.s. senate. democrats poured tons of money into that race. right now, they have a superior organization over darrell glen, basically, putting an entire course of the campaign. the big story here, not so much if hillary clinton has long coattails but a drag on the ticket, down the tickle will trump been is. the democrats ar way, but i think right now what they would status -- settle for is the status quo plus one. republicans only have a one- seat advantage in this state senate race, and democrats here are watching the race in arvada closely between rachael zenzinger and republican laura woods. republicans and democrats don't know if that race is going to be called and they don't think they may have an answer until thanksgiving. that is one to watch. now, tension in this room room
even though a couple of swing states out east turn, but it's likely that people will be watching the state races closely and all the way until every ballot is counted. back to you, tom. >> and still, we'll be talking to you a lot this evening. and let's go to kelly. as i mentioned, he's running against mike kaufman for the u.s. house seat. >> reporter: and we just spoke with her campaign manager not too long ago. they know that this race is very close and very tight and this is where her election- night party is going to kickoff in a few hours, one of the most competitive races in the state and one of the more closely watched across the country. the former state senator has spent much of the past few days knocking on doors and maybing phone calls to encourage more voters to get out there and vote. carol recently gaped a big boost from vermont senator bernie sander when is he made a stop for her in high lands
she's running in a district that is racially and ethnically diverse, so that is a big issue in the race. the democrats have a slight edge over republicans in distribute 6, so tom carol is hoping that she can be the candidate that will prevent kaufman from having a fifth it early in washington. >> all right, thank you, kelly. and again, we're expecting a historic night here and democrats are expecting a party and we can tell you for sure, campaign 2016 is in >> thank you. and this is our special elect night coverage for you at 5. cbs news takes over with national election coverage. for more local coverage all evening long, catch us on cpt channel 12 starting at 7al the way through 10 and -- 7 all the way through 10 and we'll be back here for cbs 4 news at 10. results for all of the races and local numbers and state ballot measures will be live on cbsdenver.com. coming up, we have more campaign 2016 coverage.

tell them to go fu_k themselves." vo: because all it takes is one wrong move. donald trump audio only: "i would bomb the sh_t out of them." vo: just one. . right now, our campaign 2016 coverage continues. >> many voters in colorado did wanted to visit the polls on election day. in the last hour, we saw an interruption
with the state's voter registration system. our team coverage continues with brian maas live at the secretary of state's office tonight. what can you tell us, bri? >> reporter: karen, at 2:47 this afternoon, the statewide voter data base went down. it was down for 29 minutes. the secretary of state wayne williams can give us an explanation not just for what
process. >> the voter registration data base enables a clerk's judges to determine whether an individual has cast a ballot. during the time that data base was down, a clerk was not able to issue regular ballots to individuals in line. they were able to, however, issue provisional ballots and those will be counted the same as a regular ballot would be. the other thing that can't be happened during that brief time period was that you can't check signatures for the the29-minute period and doesn't a picture how -- affect how the votes were counted, does not affect the results. it simply changes what type of voter some had to be issued during that 29-minute period. >> moving along, you and i have been talking about pueblo county, that there is a bloc of
>> for most of the large counties, they plan on the process completing for the day some time around 1 or 2:00 p.m. tonight and resuming it tomorrow. that has been true for most of large counties in other elects as well urn the new model. it takes longer to process a ballot than an in-person ballot. the public county has made a decision to use style ballots for their in-person voters, so that means those ballots have to be duplicated. th team of judges and takes time to do and to make sure it's done right. >> very good, thank you very much, secretary of state way williams. the latest figures are that 2.4 million votes had been cast so far in colorado and wayne williams told me earlier he thinks we'll have 2.7 or 2.8 million and that will be a record for the state of colorado. we'll keep an eye on things here and reporting live, brian maas, cbs 4 and news. >> all right, thank you for the update, brian.
voters are deciding on everything from the right to die to increasing the minimum wage. >> political specialist shaun boyd joins us now. we talked a few weeks ago about how much money was spent on the measures? >> and might be a record amount. and we're talking about tens of millions of dollars and most is from out of state. usually outside spending occurs in colorado's congressional races, but this year, the state's ballot measures are also attracting big money from all over the country. and this is a look at spenders and what is at stake. amendment 69 and goes where no state has gone before, setting up a singer-payer healthcare system in colorado, funded by a 10 and% income tax he can. amendment 70 and would raise the minimum wage to $12 and an hour and the next three years. out-of-state unions have largely bank rolled this one. amendment 71 and would make it more difficult to amend the state constitution. one out of state union spent a
opposing this one. and phillip morris dropped more than 16 million to fight amendment 72, raising the tax on tobacco. and maybe the most initial issue, proposition 106. it would make colorado the sixth state to legalize assisted suicide and propositions 107 and 108 would bring back colorado's presidential primary and allow unaffiliateed voters to paris if -- and perhaps -- where michael bloomberg&donated $200,000 to pass the sugar law. and several measures ended up on the ballot after the legislature failed to pass them. almost all of them have bipartisan support and bipartisan opposition. so, they really could go either way and they have big ramifications for all of us. >> all night long, we're going to follow the local races and presidential race on channel
and our alan gionet is here with more. there is a lot to keep track of. >> and there is so much. and we have provisions and let's look at the big things. the battle is going to be on in these states, the race for president. and those expected to go to hilary clinton in blue. the ones in gray are too close to call right now. and 270 to win. 270 electoral votes. some of the latest polling puts hillary clinton ahead in the states of wisconsin and also in michigan and the latest polling shows colorado has a little bit of an edge. donald trump has an edge in ohio and an edge in arizona. also in iowa as well.
biggest prizes in florida and pennsylvania. 29 electoral votes in florida, 20 in pennsylvania. they are very close. watch closely tonight, florida, pennsylvania, ohio, north carolina, and michigan. there are different ways the candidates can get to the 270 electoral votes, but the later states, colorado, arizona, nevada may not matter if the right combination happens tonight for either trump or clinton in the keeping score for all of us tonight, alan. thank you. >> you do need a scoreboard. and let's go to ed greenee. the folks had a beautiful day to cast their ballots. >> i'm ed greene and i approve the forecast. just some high clouds, moisture, and that is all we're seeing for colorado right now. you can see across the entire state, that is the same situation. let's run the hour-by-hour. we'll take it from right now and there is not much going on. we'll take it until news time tomorrow. that is overnight and that is

they can cast their ballot by machine or the old-fashioned way on paper. but with the push towards mail- in ballots, some simply chose to drop them off. >> oh, i really felt like i made the right one when i found out there was a bit of a wait at this particular location. it's nice to drop it in the box and walk on out. >> reporter: with this being a presidential election, it's an opportunity to be heard that only comes around once four years. this line bends all the way down the hall into the room before you can cast your ballot. as we indicated, they're waiting about 90 minutes right now. the system was down for about a half an hour statewide and these people are paying the price right now. if you have a mail-in ballot, matt crane, the clerk and recorder of arapahoe county said use that, fill it out and come to a polling place and drop it in.

has more. >> reporter: there are three pivotal states, florida, north carolina, and ohio, must-wins for trump. if he loses here, it's lights out. if he wins, colorado becomes very important and drilling down here, there are really five counties that could swing this: jefferson, arapahoe and larimer, traditional swing counties and pueblo and adams, traditionally democratic strongholds that trump could flip with the help of working- class democrats. as of this afternoon, republicans were edging out democrats in jefferson arapahoe, 8600 more democrats had voted and in larimer, about 6200 more republicans have. >> the balance of power in the united states senate hangs in the balance tonight. >> republicans are expected to hang on to the house, but the senate really is up for grabs. the current senate has 54 republicans and 46 democrats, two of whom are independents that caucus with the party. democrats need four to five seats to flip the senate, depending on who the vice
the most contented races are nevada, missouri, indiana, pennsylvania, new hampshire, and north carolina. we'll be watching these closely tonight. it's interesting, colorado's u.s. senator michael bennett was once considered the most vulnerable democratic incumbent this election, but he's expected to win against republican darrell glen who has not been able to mount an effective challenge due to a lack of infrastructure and resources. the party establishment has not helped him out much at all. >> we heard about the latino vote being especially a big tact factor in florida and arizona. what about here? >> it could be a huge factor here. they represent 15% of colorado's electorate and are breaking for clinton. another big voting bloc overlooked is veterans. there are more than 400,000 veterans in colorado, about 13% of our electric. they favor trump. young voters could be key this year. they're not excited about either candidate and if they sit it out, that really hurts clinton.
have much more from shaun throughout the evening and all night. we want to check in with hillary clinton's headquarters. >> and here's more. what do you have in. >> reporter: crews are putting the finishing touches on the stage where hillary clint son hoping to make history. -- clinton is hoping to make history. many are filing in, hoping to get as close to her as possible. clouds greet -- crowds hillary clinton as she arrived to vote in new york. she said voting for herself was humbling. >> i know how much responsibility goes with this and so many people are counting on the outcome of this election. >> reporter: former president bill clinton said he's already getting used to the idea of being the country's first, first gentlemen. >> it felt that way for several years now. i'm good. >> reporter: voters face long lines as the polls open. pennsylvania is a battleground
these philadelphia voters didn't need a reminder. >> i think hillary will make a difference. trump, i see him as for himself. >> reporter: and clinton arrived in new york city just around 6:00. she is spending the first part of the evening at the peninsula hotel, which is just one block away from trump tower. she will make her way here to the javitz center to watch the rest of the results thousands of supporters. jim and karen? back to you. >> and thank you very much. the congressional races being closely watched this election. the balance of power, will it shake up at all? alan gionet is here now. you will follow the races closely, report you? >> and i want to look at what is going on here in colorado. and let's go to them. we'll bring them in here and take a closer view and we'll

district 5, colorado springs. you know, that is the most conservative in the state. incumbent doug lamborn is facing democrat misty plowwright, the first openly transgender person to win a major party nomination for congress in colorado. district six has been the focus of a lot of attention around the country. incumbent republican mike coffman facing morgan carol. this election carol has tried to tie coffman who has distanced himself from trump and pointed to many of his more moderate positions adapted since the district change. that is going to be closely watched and district 7, that one is on again, the west side of the metro area. ed purl mutter facing george athenstopolis. perlmutter has more in this. >> and that is a tough one. thank you. our coverage of campaign
