Governor Hickenlooper warns against disrupting recall election

DENVER (AP) - Gov. John Hickenlooper is warning against any attempts to disrupt Colorado's first legislative recall election.

In a statement Monday, Hickenlooper said that there have been disturbing reports of people going to the polls not to vote but to "disrupt the process."

Spokesman Eric Brown explains that there have been reports of people asking for ballots but walking away without casting them in El Paso and Pueblo counties. He said the missing ballots could be used as a reason to challenge the results of the election.

The statement comes two days after Jon Caldara of the Independence Institute changed his residency so he could vote in the recall election of Senate President John Morse in Colorado Springs but Brown said the statement wasn't aimed at him.
