BROOMFIELD, Colo. (AP) — Ballot counting on a fracking measure in suburban Denver resumes Wednesday.

The measure to ban hydraulic fracturing for five years fell 13 votes short of passing in the Nov. 5 election. The tally won't be official until officials have counted all overseas and military ballots, provisional ballots and other ballots with problems like missing signatures.

Voters in three other Front Range cities passed fracking bans last week.
