Loveland

More than 544,000 Coloradans voted, nearly a 16 percent turnout, in the state's primary election, according to the Secretary of State's Office.

Loveland voters will soon become the sixth Front Range community to weigh restrictions on hydraulic fracturing. The June 24, 2014 special election asks voters to decide whether to impose a two-year moratorium on fracking, the process of pumping sand, water and chemicals that are proprietary to oil companies into the ground to extract resources.
