Sanders campaign moves Sunday's Denver rally to bigger venue

Citing high demand, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is moving the rally he's holding in downtown Denver on Sunday to a larger venue.

The Vermont senator plans to address supporters in the Colorado Convention Center's 12,000-capacity Exhibition Hall C/D, instead of the facility's Bellco Theater, which seats 5,000 people, his campaign said.

Colorado voters are receiving mail ballots for the March 3 presidential primary this week.

It will be the second visit to Colorado since Sanders launched his 2020 presidential campaign, and the first since he assumed the mantle of front-runner following a tie for first place in the Iowa caucuses and a win Tuesday in the New Hampshire primary. In September, 10,000 people filled Denver's Civic Center to hear Sanders speak.

The rally is scheduled to start at 6 p.m., and doors open at 4 p.m. Tickets aren't required, but the Sanders campaign urges attendees to RSVP here.

Presidential candidates are beginning to swarm Colorado as the state's Super Tuesday primary approaches.

Thousands of Colorado 17-year-olds can vote on Super Tuesday

AURORA, Colo. (AP) — Thousands of 17-year-olds are eligible to vote in Colorado’s upcoming presidential primary for the first time under a new state law.

The law allows 17-year-olds to cast ballots in spring primaries if they turn 18 before November’s general election. At least seven states and Washington, D.C., have similar laws.

According to the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office, about 24,000 teens are eligible to vote in the March 3 primary under the change, a small number in a state with 3.4 million voters, the Sentinel Colorado reported.

“Chances are that turnout won’t be very high among this group, since it tends to be low among young people in general, and probably a lot of them aren’t aware they can vote now,” said Seth Masket, a political science professor at the University of Denver.

However, the new voters could help Bernie Sanders’ candidacy and that could make a difference in a tight race, Denver pollster and commentator Floyd Ciruli said. The Vermont senator has benefited from support among Generation Z and millennial voters.
