In Colorado, there is a roughly even split between Democrats and Republicans registered to vote this election -- but based on a report sent out this morning, 38,059 more Republicans than Democrats have cast ballots so far in early voting, which ends today. Yesterday, at Obama's Boulder rally, we asked ten in attendance if they've voted -- eight have -- and if they think enough Obama supporters in Colorado will come out in strong numbers to help secure a second term.

Dina Lerner, eighteen-year-old student, has voted

"I feel really confident that people will vote this election. It's very personal and women need to get out, or else we're screwed. My friends have been voting -- it's all we talk about.... Of course, I'm nervous. There's a lot at stake."

Felipe Mosqueda, a 26-year-old marketing professional, has voted

"This is my first time voting and I'm feeling great about it. I definitely think [Obama] can win...because the other candidate goes back and forth on so many issues.... I do think the third-party candidates don't get as much attention as they should."

Continue for more supporters.
