Colorado residents go to the polls Tuesday to vote on whether to recall two state senators who supported stricter gun laws in the aftermath of two 2012 mass shootings.
The recall vote effort appears to be the strongest backlash to such state votes -- considering Democratic-leaning Connecticut, Maryland and New York passed similar legislation without resulting in a recall effort getting on a ballot.

I believe the article states that this election is Tuesday, September 10 -- though the article also states that 3rd party candidates were given more time. Maybe the deadline for the 3rd party candidates was pushed back, not the vote on Tuesday, September 10, 2013...
Sounds like a dare from the demoncrat caucus.
Anybody interested in moving forward?
I don’t believe that recall is an option in Maryland law.
“Gun Talk” had an interview today with one of the Sheriffs, Terry Maketa, who explains it in good detail.
The newly passed Colorado election law allows you to vote in a district if you "intend" to move there. Caldera says this will allow Democrats to move voters around to districts where they are weak and will result in elections being won by whoever has the most buses.
More on Jon Caldara...
The Independence Institute president will exercise his legal voting rights in next weeks recall election, casting a ballot in a district outside his current residence.
Independence Institute president Jon Caldaras decision to vote in the Senate District 11 recall kicks off the Bring in the Vote educational campaign, highlighting the significant legal changes in Colorados Voter Access and Modernized Elections Act, signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 10.
Calling attention to the lax new election law sponsored by Senators John Morse and Angela Giron, both facing recall elections, Caldara announced that he has the intention to make his permanent home in Senate District 11, currently represented by Morse.
Under HB 1303, the intention to establish residence along with a few minor requirements such as being 18 years of age, living in Colorado for 22 days, and having an address in the district, permits almost anyone to Bring in the Vote and cast a ballot in any district.
It is my belief that this extremely sloppy new election law was designed to legally move voters into districts where their vote is most useful. I will show how this dangerous new law works by easily and legally voting in the John Morse recall election, explained Caldara.
John Morse sponsored this law and worked its passage through the Senate. And now, sadly, under this law future Colorado elections will be decided by which candidate has the most buses.
To inform voters concerning their voting rights under the new law, the Independence Institute has launched an educational website: www.BringInTheVote.com.
Though we may disagree on issues and candidates, I hope we all will agree that all Coloradans should be fully informed of their new voting rights and how to exercise them, Caldara said.
Only voters that live in their districts can vote, correct?
Ha! That was a timely question.
“Even if money from folks like Bloomberg, it sounds like these two Senators may be headed for defeat.”
Maybe. But under Colorado’s new election law, residents of Denver and Boulder may vote in this election. The heavy turnout may be buses coming in from Denver and Boulder. The new election law the Democrats passed this last year legalizes or makes much easier most of their favorite forms of voter fraud.
Only voters that live in their districts can vote, correct?
I believe that applies to Republican voters in Colorado. Otherwise, they would not have been Californicated.
“Only voters that live in their districts can vote, correct?”
Nope. The new election law dems passed last term allows anyone to vote so long as they “intend” to move to the district. But there is no penalty for falsely stating your intention to move and no checking for voters that declare their intent and don’t move.
In other words, anyone in CO can vote in the election. Based on past history, a lot more D’s will be willing to falsely state their intent to move than R’s and D’s are much better at renting buses on election day.
I’m hopeful that we can pull this election out but we need to win by 5-10% points in the real vote. That is more than the usual margin needed to overcome vote fraud.
“...Connecticut, Maryland and New York passed similar legislation without resulting in a recall effort getting on a ballot.”
CT does not have a recall process.
“The recall vote effort appears to be the strongest backlash to such state votes — considering Democratic-leaning Connecticut, Maryland and New York passed similar legislation without resulting in a recall effort getting on a ballot.”
Unfortunately we the People of the State of Connecticut Don’t have the Right to Initiative and Referendum or the Right to Recall these lying Politicians.If we had the Right our Present Governor would have been thrown out of office by now.
Is it the “Get Out The Fraud” voter drive by the Dems?
I think his radio show starts in 5 minutes. We shall see.
Is the elections commisioner a Dem ?
It sounds like "Three Card Monty" with election votes
I hope there will be prosecutions for 'multiple voting'and voter fraud !!
He did vote.
Oh, nevermind. He accepted the ballot, but did not vote.
Everyone who ever lived or died in Coloradico will be voting!
recall is not an option in NY.
I certainly hope so.
I've found out, however, that because of new voting laws in Colorado that were sponsored by Morse and Giron, and signed by Hickenlooper, anyone who has lived ANYWHERE in Colorado for the past 22 days, and who "states an intention" to move to district 11 or to district 3, where the recalls are taking place, can vote in the recall election.
More laws passed by democrats that are specifically designed to make voter fraud easier.
I'm crossing my fingers that the vote is not close enough for their cheating to swing the recall.
Terry Maketa has been THE bright spot in this whole Colorado fiasco. He's an awesome man to have as a Sheriff.
He was Gooooooooooooood!
Connecticut has no basis for recall. One more thing to fix.
