Voting returns have Democrat Annette Cannon leading Republican Matt Archuleta in the Jefferson County coroner race, according to the fourth round of unofficial results, which were released around 4 p.m. on Nov. 9.

As of  4 p.m. on Nov. 9, 93% of ballots were counted. As of 4 p.m. on Nov. 9, Cannon had received 150,931 votes, while Archuleta had received 112,440. Local election officials have said that a final count isn't expected until Nov. 9 or later.

Cannon said she's "Feeling good" about the results so far, but maintained that she would not declare victory until "That last vote's in."

"I think that the voters really paid attention and I think they could see how dedicated I've been to this job over the last four years and I think they can see the good that I've done for the office and for the citizens."

Cannon added that her goals for her second term are to complete the office's accredidation, provide more education for the community and look at innovative technology. 

Archuleta could not be reached for comment on Election Night. 

Cannon is running for re-election after first being elected to the office in 2018. During her term, she has overseen the office’s response to the I-70 disaster and the COVID-19 pandemic.

She is a registered nurse who has experience as a death investigator through the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators and the Colorado Coroners Association.

Cannon said her priorities are retaining staff, hiring diverse candidates and continuing to provide statistics and communication to other agencies and offices.

Archuleta is an Aurora native and has served with the Arvada Police Department for 33 years. Since 2010, he has served as a crime scene investigator for the department.

If elected, his priorities are to seek national accreditation for the office, take stock of inventory and see if anything needs to be replaced or upgraded and provide education for the community.

As election results come in, this story will be updated.
