The Colorado Libertarian Party held a statewide primary on August 10. This was the first time Colorado had provided a statewide primary for any party, other than the Democratic and Republican Parties, since 1914 and 1916, years in which the Progressive (“Bull Moose”) Party had Colorado primaries.
For Governor, Jaimes Brown defeated Dan “Kilo” Sallis, 62% to 38%. For U.S. Senate, Maclyn Stringer defeated John Finger, 53% to 47%. No news source seems to have mentioned how many voters voted in the Libertarian Party primary. Colorado has closed primaries. Independent voters are free to change registration on primary election day and join any party. However, the Democratic and Republican primaries were so competitive this year for U.S. Senator, probably very few independent voters enrolled in the Libertarian Party on primary day. The Libertarian Party had 8,453 registered voters in Colorado as of a few months ago.
