Post Premium: Top stories for Oct. 5-11, 2020 – The Denver Post

As I type, ballots are headed to mailboxes across Colorado. No matter whose side you come down on, you’re probably more than ready to vote for president. But how much do you know about the rest of the ballot? I’m that nerdy political journalist who is always saying local races are at least as important as who’s on top of the ticket.

The Denver Post has begun rolling out well over a hundred stories, explainers and Q&As to help you with the rest of your ballot in the coming weeks. In Sunday’s paper, reporters Alex Burness and Justin Wingerter take a look at where Senate candidates Cory Gardner and John Hickenlooper stand on 13 issues that matter to Coloradans, and reporter John Aguilar takes a deep dive into the pros and cons of the state assigning its electors based on the national popular vote.

Our print voter guide — which includes Q&As for a couple of key races and explainers of the statewide issues — is also in today’s paper, with far more information a click away whenever you need it in our online voter guide. Let me know what else we can do to help you by emailing [email protected]
