It looks like a rematch is coming in November, but young Colorado voters like University of Denver student Aidan Evans aren’t thrilled over the Biden-Trump face-off for the second straight presidential election.

“I think Joe Biden has done a fine job as president overall. But I don’t think he should be in the office again. I’ll be voting for him because that’s my only option, but no 82-year-old should be in the presidency, regardless of their politics,” said Evans.

The University of Denver held a watch party as the results came in last night. Colorado was one of 16 states voting in yesterday’s presidential primary. In fact, it was the only race on the ballot.

Voters made their voices heard, choosing President Biden and former President Trump as the nominees. At last check, both had more than 400,000 votes to secure their party nominations.

“I think that if we are forced to, we’ll vote for Biden overwhelmingly against Trump,” said another University of Denver student, Sergio Hernandez.

So far, the statewide turnout is reported to be 34 percent.
