Colorado is holding a special State Senate election on September 10, in the Eleventh District in El Paso County. The special election is also a recall election. The ballot asks voters if they wish to recall incumbent State Senator John Morse, a Democrat. If he is recalled, then the ballot asks who should replace him. However, the only name on that part of the ballot is Republican candidate Bernie Herpin.
The Libertarian Party petitioned for Jan Brooks, but on August 27, her petition was ruled invalid. She needed 575 valid signatures and she was told that she only had 408 valid signatures. She had submitted 834. She considered suing, but the election is September 10 and there didn’t seem to be enough time. She is running a write-in campaign and her write-ins will be tallied.
