Early voting ran from Oct. 23, 2000 (15 days before the election) to Nov. 3, 2000 (Friday before the election).

Turnout as a percentage of voting age population was 56.78%.  (U.S. avg: 53.76%).

Overview
Bush won Colorado with a plurality of 145,521 votes (8.36 percentage points) and carried 50 of the state's 63 counties. In contrast to 1996, when Colorado experienced a dogfight in the presidential race, the Gore camp did not target the state, making for a quiet general election campaign. During the post-convention period Colorado only merited one visit each from the running mates.  Ralph Nader made a couple of visits after the Greens convention in June (Sept. 8-10 and a final stop on Nov. 2), and his 5.25% proved to be one of his better showings.  Down-ticket there were various initiative campaigns, and Colorado Democrats managed to wrest control of the State Senate from the GOP, for their only legislative chamber pick-up in the country.
