During this historic election year, Colorado Springs, a longtime Republican stronghold in Colorado, appeared steady and somewhat subdued in the morning hours of Election Day.

Cars and people steadily dropped off ballots and supporters of either presidential candidate, former VP Joe Biden and President Donald Trump, were few and far between early in the day.

Here a few things we saw today:
