Libertarians sue over election rules

A day after their District 11 candidate, Jan Brooks, was rejected from the ballot, the Libertarian Party of Colorado has sued Secretary of State Scott Gessler — for a totally different matter.

The Libertarians says that Gessler has created unfair and illegal rules for the Sept. 10 recall elections of Senate President John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron. Their biggest objection is to the use of email ballots.

Gessler wrote the new rules following a judge’s decision in another legal challenge brought by the Libertarians. In that case, the Party was asking for more time to petition their candidates onto the ballot, saying the state Constitution allowed them a larger window. The judge sided with the Libertarians, throwing the election calendar into chaos, making the widespread use of mail ballots impossible, and making current election law unenforceable.
