Hickenlooper Goofs On Early Voting Ballot

DENVER (AP) -- Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper is finding out it takes some patience to get through Colorado's ballot.

The Denver mayor had to fill out an early-voting ballot twice Saturday after he accidentally voted not to retain a county judge who is a friend.

Under the glare of television cameras Saturday morning, he asked for a second ballot, saying, "The pencil went to the wrong place. I blew it."

Hickenlooper says the state's long ballot takes a lot of time to read, and he learned like a lot of other voters that you have to be careful.

He launched a five-day bus tour of the state Saturday to court votes.

    A positive campaign will get my vote. A Negative one won't. It's that simple.

    Why don't you fault-finders cool it? Hickenlooper is the ONLY politician running for anything who has NOT run ads cutting down his opponents...I'm a registered Republican and have been for many years but I'll vote for him, the only fair politician I've seen this year.

    I hope the poll workers destroyed the ruined ballot. We don't need extra votes cast. I wouldn't be surprised if we have problems in some areas, like Denver, with election fraud.
