New Bill Supposed To Make It Easier To Vote In Recall Elections

DENVER (CBS4) – Democrats in the state senate introduced a bill they say will make it easier for people to vote in recall elections.

The bill comes after two Democratic senators were recalled last year over their support of gun laws.

The turnout in one election was only 20 percent.

Democrats say state law and the constitution conflict on how recalls are carried out, preventing mail balloting.

“The net effect of having inconsistencies between the two is if you do believe in right of recall we’re in a situation where people who want to vote actually don’t have ability to vote,” said Senate President Sen. Morgan Carroll.

Senate Republicans oppose the bill saying it would require a change to the constitution which means a vote of the people.
