Almost 2.6 million Coloradans cast ballots in the midterm election, giving the state the second highest turnout in the nation, according to the unofficial final tally.

Information sent to the Colorado Secretary of State from Colorado's 64 county clerks show that 2,585,944 ballots were cast, and 2,574,748 ballots were counted. Voters who failed to cure signature problems accounted for the majority of untabulated ballots.

According to the secretary of state, 34.0 percent of the voters were unaffiliated; 32.9 percent Democrat; 31.5 percent Republicans; and 1.5% other.

City clerk Jolene Nelson reported that 62 percent of the city's active voters cast ballots in the November election. Countywide, 15,962 votes were cast, representing 71.35 percent of the county's registered electors. That compares to 65.2 percent of the registered voters across the state.
