Statewide Analysis

Click here for state and local election results in Colorado.

Presidential:
Hillary Clinton won Colorado's 9 electoral votes despite a recent tightening of the polls in the state.  Colorado has traditionally been a battleground state for Presidential campaigns, but for most of this cycle the state was trending for Clinton that the competition for its votes didn't really heat up till the last month of the campaign.

Senate:
Colorado's Senate race had been considered a toss up to start the 2016 cycle, but incumbent Senator Michael Bennet (D) won re-election over El Paso County Supervisor Darryl Glenn (R).

House:
One of the most competitive U.S. House races in the country was Colorado's 6th District.  Representative Mike Coffman (R) won re-election in an extremely tight race.  The rest of the Colorado delegation stayed the same. 

Other Notable Election Results:
Control of both chambers in the Colorado state house was on the line this election.  Each party controlled on chamber prior to the election.   Democrats managed to win three more states in the Colorado House of Representatives to add to their majority in that chamber, now holding 37 of the 65 total seats.  The Colorado State Senate saw no changes and the Republicans maintained their one seat majority controlling 18 seats.
 
A minimum wage increase and an effort to create singe payer for healthcare both were featured on the Colorado ballot. Amendment 69 was defeated, but would have created a new state healthcare system, ColoradoCare, that would act like a single payer and provide universal healthcare in the state.  Amendment 70 will raise the minimnum wage in Colorado to $12 an hour by 2020.  The vote for the minimum wage passed with 55% of the vote.

Incumbent Senator Michael Bennet (D) was re-elected defeating El Paso County Supervisor Darryl Glenn (R). Early in the 2016 election cycle, Colorado had been viewed as one of the few states that Republicans would be able to pick up a seat in the Senate from Democrats. Bennet ran a strong campaign to prevent a similar result that former Colorado Senator Mark Udall (D) suffered in 2014.
