Unsurprisingly, Democrats are leading among those unregistering to vote in Colorado

The Electoral Commission's report states: "Although people may lawfully be registered to vote in more than one place in certain circumstances, it is troubling that some voters appear to have admitted voting a few times at the General Election, which is an offence".

There were also 40 withdrawals from Greens, 34 from Libertarians, 4 from the American Constitution Party and 1 from the Unity Party of Colorado, leaving a total of 3,726,504 Colorado voters, all according to the Secretary of State.

The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity asked the state to provide the information by July 14.

The commission's request for data is suspended following a complaint filed by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, a national privacy watchdog group.

The commission was created via executive order in May to investigate President Donald Trump's claims that millions of fraudulent votes caused him to lose the popular vote in November to Democrat Hillary Clinton.

There were another 200 people who have opted to make their voter information confidential.

In Colorado, 2,037 Democrats have withdrawn their registration, along with 1,255 unaffiliated voters and 367 Republicans.

The nonprofit ERIC shares large amounts of sensitive voter data to root out possible fraud, ensure more accurate voter rolls and encourage registration.

Election officials, including La Plata County Clerk and Recorder Tiffany Parker, have expressed concern with voters withdrawing from the voter registry, because they will not receive mail ballots for the November election unless they re-register.

"I'd just hate for people to give up their right to vote because they don't want their information, which has already been public for years, to go out", Parker said.
