Voters are not very engaged with respect to Tuesday's election, according to the Denver Post [November 2, 2003, "Experts: Little passion in vote"]. From the article, "So far, according to professional election watchers, the 2003 campaign has generated some spending records but aroused little civic passion."

Here's an editorial about voting practices and mail-in ballots from the Denver Post [November 2, 2003, "Mailbox or ballot box?"]. From the article, "Mail ballots have been used for a decade in Colorado and have become the most common voting method in the non-partisan elections held in odd-numbered years. In many jurisdictions, you now you have to vote by mail, except for the inconventient option of driving to a county office to drop your ballot in a box." The Post is running viewpoints on mail-in balloting, both pro and con.
