The day has finally arrived when all the decisions will be made. Voters will either cast out or keep the incumbents, approve a new government structure for Colorado Springs or keep the old city manager form, and allow county officials to serve additional third terms or say "no way."

Who isn't glad for the end of all that negative advertising that helped run up a nearly $40 million campaign tab in one race alone — U.S. Senate? (The TV and radio stations, who cashed in on the avalanche of ads, are probably the only ones regretting the end of campaign season.)

As of late Monday, county election manager Liz Olson reports 105,600 had voted, which she termed "a good turnout" but lower than the 2008 presidential election.

Surprisingly, the polls are enjoying a good turnout as well.

"I believe they are staying busy today. People are calling to find their polling location for voting so that's good," Olson reports.

Stay with the Independent for results tonight as the returns come in. Or, go here to see the results as they're posted by election officials.
