UPDATE: As of Tuesday Nov. 15, almost 147,000 more women than men have voted in Colorado.
On the night of the Colorado primary, I called Democratic Rep. Lois Court of Denver to congratulate her on winning her three-way race for state Senate.
I didn’t have a dog in the fight but I had covered Court. We also talked about Rep. Beth McCann’s win over two men in her three-way Democratic primary for Denver district attorney.
“I guess it is The Year of the Woman,” I said.
“The Year of the Mature Woman,” Court corrected me. After all, the 67-year-old had just defeated a man and a woman in their 30s.
“I like to call it the ‘Year of the Ageless Woman,'” said former House Majority Leader Amy Stephens.
Given Clinton’s nomination and some of the topics in this presidential cycle, the Colorado Secretary of State also tracked ballot returns by gender this election.
