More legal haggling over Colorado recall elections

DENVER (AP) - Colorado elections administrators are back in court Wednesday ironing out how to run next month's legislative recalls in Colorado Springs and Pueblo.

A Denver judge was hearing the latest legal wrinkle in the Sept. 10 recall elections for two Democrats, Sens. Angela Giron and John Morse. Both are facing recall elections because of their support for gun-control measures.

Colorado Libertarians don't like how the secretary of state has proposed to collect votes from military and overseas voters. State elections officials say the system in place is workable and allows military and overseas voters the most possible time to cast ballots.

The recalls are the first for state lawmakers in state history. The recalls have attracted several lawsuits, leading to fears of voter confusion about the unusual elections.
