Settlement will allow thousands of Coloradans to vote
October 30 2008
A federal judge has accepted an agreement that clears the way for thousands of Colorado voters to cast ballots in the upcoming election. The state of Colorado said names were properly removed from the voter rolls so corrections could be made. But a lawsuit alleged that the state broke the law by removing the names within 90 days of the August primary election.
Agreement allows affected voters to cast provisional ballots
Under the agreement the state will compile a list of voters whose names were removed from voter rolls within 90 days of the primary election. Those voters will cast provisional ballots. If their names are on the list, they will be treated as eligible voters and their ballots will be counted.
