‘Anyone but Boebert’: District 3 voters react to potential upset of Democrat Adam Frisch

In a statement Wednesday, Frisch said his campaign is waiting for every vote to be tallied.

“We still have a lot of work to do because the ballots are still being counted. I am most honored to receive so much support from the people of Colorado’s wonderful 3rd District,ā€ he wrote.

If the difference remains this small, the counting of ballots will not be in the final phase. Both campaigns will receive lists of voters whose ballots could not be counted for some reason and will try to get them to cure or solve the problems.

“Yes, we are looking at a cure,” a spokeswoman for Frisch’s campaign said in a text message.

Curing is usually reserved for ballot envelopes with unverifiable signatures. Ballots with physical damage, such as tears or stains, can also be healed.

County election offices will initiate the process by reaching out to voters via text, phone or mail. The deadline for responses is eight days after election day. If voters do not respond, their ballot will not be counted.

Ballots that qualify for a cure usually make up a small percentage of the total turnout. In many counties, about 2 percent of envelopes trigger a drug letter.

If the final results bring Boebert and Frisch within half a percent of each other, it will trigger an automatic race recount. If the final margin is higher, either campaign can still request a recount, but will have to raise costs.

In Pueblo, Carol Plymell voted a straight Republican ticket, including Boebert.

ā€œI think she’s done a good job, but I don’t think she’s re-elected,ā€ Plymell said Wednesday. “It’s close, but I was hoping she would win.”

Plymell said she is not concerned about the integrity of the election.
