The 2022 general election was finally certified by the Colorado secretary of state. This is a part of a news release from the Secretary of State’s Office: “The certification was conducted after each county’s bipartisan canvass boards submitted their official abstract of votes to the Secretary of State’s Office, as well as the conclusion of a mandatory recount in the race for Colorado’s U.S. Congressional District 3 and permissive recount of the Colorado House District 43 race.”
Because the race for U.S. Congressional District 3 was very close, it went to an automatic recount. The final results showed that Incumbent Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert officially won over Democrat Adam Frisch by 546 votes, said the news report.
Secretary Jena Griswold, said that “the 2022 general election was among the most accessible and successful in Colorado’s history.” “I am proud of our State’s elections and the voting access that we have added over the last four years,” Griswold added.
“I commend the county election officials, election workers, and the employees of the Department of State for their hard work and dedication to delivering great elections for Colorado voters,” said the secretary.
Boebert posted a video on Twitter to her followers after the results came out, with a caption that says: “All of the counties completed their recounts, and confirmed we’ve won this race.” “Republicans have been entrusted with the majority and we must now prove we can take the temperature down in DC by leading not only with strength but grace,” wrote Boebert.
