How Colorado voted

In 2016, Hillary Clinton won Colorado with 47 percent of the vote, according to NBC News results, while Donald Trump received 44 percent. Though Colorado is considered more purple than predictably blue — elections are typically close, often decided by unaffiliated voters — Democrats saw strong margins of victory in the 2018 midterm elections, and the party controls the governor’s office and both legislative chambers.

The expected vote is the total number of votes that are expected in a given race once all votes are counted. This number is an estimate and is based on several different factors, including information on the number of votes cast early as well as information provided to our vote reporters on Election Day from county election officials. The figure can change as NBC News gathers new information.
