Colorado Primary 2020: Denver Election Results

DENVER, CO — Thousands of ballots have been returned by drop box and mail in Denver for Tuesday’s state primary. The biggest race in the election is the Democratic matchup for the U.S. Senate seat.

Boris Johnson delivered an announcement on Sunday May 10 about phase two of the shutdown, indicating that the return to school would be gradual, rather than a wholesale lifting of the lockdown.

One week later, the Education Secretary defended the decision, saying that school is the safest place for children from difficult or unhappy homes, as he urged teachers to return to the classroom. Teachers’ unions, backed by the British Medical Association, have expressed concern about the phased reopening from June 1.
