DENVER (AP) — Democrats are cutting into the GOP’s edge in Colorado midterm election ballot returns. But Republicans remain about 85,000 ballots ahead of Democrats with less than a week to go.

The Colorado Secretary of State announced that as of Wednesday morning, election officials had received 905,500 ballots. Of those, 379,250 came from registered Republicans and 294,648 came from registered Democrats. The rest came from unaffiliated voters or voters with another party.

Colorado has more than 2.9 million active registered voters. This is Colorado’s second all-mail election, where all registered voters are mailed a ballot regardless of whether they requested one.

The final update to Colorado’s early returns comes Friday.
