When Colorado voters look at the Presidential Electors question on the 2020 ballot, they see Donald Trump and Joe Biden at the top, followed by 19 other candidates.
Colorado’s 21 selections put the state in a tie with Vermont for having the most presidential candidates in the 2020 election, according to Ballotpedia. Arkansas and Louisiana follow with 13 candidates each.
But with more diversity in choice comes an evident distance between high-spending campaigns amplified by large teams and massive media buys, and modest efforts defined by a website or social media campaign. There’s also the ballot access issue, where only one of these candidates made it onto the ballots of 50 states and Washington D.C.
