The early results for Denver’s municipal election are in, and while there are still about 65,000 ballots that need to be counted, some races are trending in a clear direction. According to the Denver election staff, ballots will continue to be processed at 9 a.m. today, and the next batch of updates will likely come out around 2 p.m.
The main event is the mayoral election in Denver. Lisa Calderón, currently in third place with 16,416 votes, hopes to make significant headway against Kelly Brough, currently in second place with 24,095 votes, and secure a spot in the June runoff election alongside Mike Johnston, who is now leading with 26,779 votes.
The Denver Elections office still has around 65,000 ballots left to count, making it an intense waiting game for the candidates and their supporters. Brough’s campaign manager, Sheila MacDonald, has expressed nervousness but remains optimistic. Meanwhile, at her watch party, Calderón remained confident in her progressive vision for Denver and encouraged her supporters to stay positive. With so many candidates running, it’s worth learning more about the top contenders – Johnston, Brough, and Calderón.
