Lauren Boebert still leads her race, but by a much lower amount than before.
Where she was leading by over 1,100 votes before the new updates today, now she leads by only 556.
Here’s the latest vote count that was updated this hour:
According to Decision Desk, the race is now headed for a recount:
DDHQ Race Update (est. >95% in): CO-03
Lauren Boebert (R-i): 163,702
Adam Frisch (D): 163,145
Race headed to a recount.

According to reports, the threshold for a recount was around 814 votes. If Boebert can manage to get above number that before they are done with all of the counting, then no recount. But the count has been falling precipitously since this afternoon, which is why I think Decision Desk is forecasting a recount.
If it goes to a recount, it’ll probably be weeks before we know who won the race officially.
