Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold Announces Certification of Colorado’s 2021 Coordinated Election


DENVER, Colo– Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold announced yesterday the certification of the 2021 Coordinated Election.

“Colorado’s 2021 Coordinated Election again proves that our state’s election system is the nation’s gold standard,” said Secretary Griswold.  “Once again I’m proud that we conducted a seamless election and that over 1.5 million Coloradans made their voices heard.  Thank you to the Secretary of State’s Election Division and to county clerks across the state for another job well done.”

Last week, bipartisan county audit boards successfully completed the statewide Risk-Limiting Audit (RLA), thus confirming the election outcomes with a high degree of statistical confidence. Bipartisan canvass boards then convened in each county and reconciled the number of ballots counted with the numbers of ballots cast.  Each county’s canvass board then signed off on the final results of the Coordinated Election and submitted them to the Secretary of State’s office. There are still a small number of recounts in county and municipal races, which are not conducted by the Secretary of State’s office. Updated totals and official results will be available at the end of the recount process.
