Figures released by the Colorado Secretary of State’s office show that 573,707 ballots had been returned as of Monday ahead of the March 3 Super Tuesday primary, with 43%, or 247,202, cast by Republican voters.

Democrat voters turned in 161,434 ballots, or 28%, while unaffiliated voters cast 165,067, or 29% of the ballots.
