Voting rights experts upbraided Colorado Secretary of State Mike Coffman today for shirking federal law by rejecting as many as 10,000 new voter applications.
In a letter
to Coffman, representatives of eight organizations, including the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado
, Colorado Common Cause
and the Fair Elections Legal Network
in Washington, D.C., demanded that the Secretary of State’s office direct county clerks to accept applications with minor omissions or technical mistakes.
