Latino voters turned out in record numbers in Colorado this year, more than doubling their turnout since 2004, according to recent polling data. More than 330,000 Latinos voted in the state last week, compared with 165,000 in 2004, based on exit polling from media outlets like the Wall Street Journal and Voto Latino, a national nonprofit organization that organized Latino voting drives in the state.
A federal judge took a swipe at an "obdurate" Secretary of State Mike Coffman this afternoon by ordering Colorado's top election official to stop violating federal law by purging voters. The Advancement Project, a voter protection organization, filed suit against Coffman late last week for canceling as many 30,000 voters within 90 days of the federal election, a breach of the National Voter Registration Act. Coffman's office settled with the Advancement Project late Wednesday evening, agreeing to let purged individuals vote by provisional ballot. But he has purged an additional 146 voters since then.
Voting rights advocates entered into a shaky truce late Wednesday with Secretary of State Mike Coffman's office over his allegedly illegal purge of 30,000 voters in Colorado. The Advancement Project, a national voter protection group, filed suit against Coffman late last week to force the secretary to reinstate the voters and halt any new purges. Coffman's removals included people who moved, inactive citizens, and newly registered individuals whose voter cards bounced back to county clerks. The Advancement Project claimed that Coffman's removals violated the National Voter Registration Act because they occurred within 90 days of a federal election. Coffman denied any wrongdoing.
