Unaffiliated voters make up the largest percentage of the electorate in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District

When Republican Lauren Boebert was first elected to Congress in 2020, unaffiliated voters carried her to victory — and she’ll need their support again this year to win a second term. 

That’s because 44% of active registered voters in Boebert’s GOP-leaning 3rd Congressional District, which stretches across the Western Slope into Pueblo and southern Colorado, are unaffiliated, while 31% are Republicans and 24% are Democrats. 

In the spring of 2021, The Colorado Sun partnered with news organizations across the 3rd District to interview randomly selected unaffiliated voters represented by Boebert to get a sense of their thoughts on the congresswoman’s performance during her first months in office.

As Boebert vies for reelection this year against Democrat Adam Frisch, a former Aspen city councilman, we called back those same voters to hear what they think of the congresswoman now after two years in Washington, D.C., and all the controversies she’s been at the center of.
