In the last three presidential cycles, fewer than 1 percent of all Colorado voters skipped the presidential race. So far tonight, 2.3 percent of voters did not cast a vote for any presidential candidate. 

That’s a lot. It could even be a record-breaking number. In the past 90 minutes or so, the percentage has gone up and not all votes have been counted yet.

The previous record was set in 1996, when 2.6 percent of ballots didn’t include a vote for president.
