Voting Rules Lawsuit

By  | 

A public policy lobbying group says it won't immediately appeal a judge's ruling that upheld several new voting rules, including one requiring people to show identification before casting a ballot.

Colorado Common Cause executive director Pete Maysmith says an appeal less than two weeks before the election would create too
much confusion.

The judge also upheld a rule allowing people who show up at the wrong precinct to vote only for president, and not for U-S senator or any other statewide race -- even though those races appear on every ballot in every precinct.

Maysmith says the group's decision doesn't mean there will never be an appeal, but says if an appeal is filed, it will wait until
after the election.
