Denver election official: Don't expect results on Tuesday

DENVER (AP) -- The polls are open in Colorado for the half of the state's registered voters who didn't cast their ballots by mail or at an early-voting location.

Election officials say nearly 1.6 million out of 3.2 million Colorado voted early. Still, they say don't expect final results today.

Denver Election Commission spokesman Alton Dillard says the days of having "close to final results by 10 p.m. are over." He says officials have tried to make it clear from the start that workers will still be counting ballots into Wednesday.

Dillard says the process to tabulate paper and mail-in ballots is time consuming.
