With Colorado being an important swing state in the election, many questions arise concerning how the state handles the voting process.

Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler sits down with Melody to answer questions relating to early voting in the state, the reliability of touch-screen voting, and what those who have not yet voted need to know before they hit the polls.

Gessler said a rough estimate of 80-percent of voters in Colorado have already turned in their ballots, which will be counted first on election day. Due to a higher amount of registered Republicans voting early, initial results may give Romney a strong lead. As more ballots are tallied throughout the day, this picture could change rapidly.

Gessler provides more insight into Colorado's impact on the presidential election. Watch the video above for more.
