You Can't Make This S[tuff] Up: CO Town Sues ALL Its Voters

by - August 14, 2014

There are lots of interesting stories in the world of elections, but one this week qualifies as different enough that I'm confident I've never seen it before - the town of Montezuma, CO is suing every single one of its voters after a controversial election. The Denver Post has more: Voting is supposed be a right and a privilege. But in the pint-sized, high-mountain town of Montezuma it also has become grounds for a lawsuit. The town and its novice clerk have filed suit against every registered voter in the town, claiming that an election held last spring had numerous errors. The lawsuit filed in Summit County District Court last week lists errors that include numbers that don't add up and mismatched ballots that had to be patched together with the clerk's sewing machine. The lawsuit asks a judge to command all 61 registered voters in Montezuma to appear in court so the judge can sort out an election mess that the petition calls "fatally flawed."
