Next week's historic Colorado recall election is being viewed as a key litmus test of the nation's appetite for gun control laws, but it's also the test run for the state's hotly contested elections law.
Military voting rights still aren't protected. That's the message from former Justice Department official M. Eric Eversole, who argues in a column at the front of this section that his former employer is undermining the new law requiring states to mail ballots to military voters at least 45 days before the November elections. If anything, the situation might be even worse than Mr. Eversole suggests.
Colorado Republican Scott McInnis rebuffed calls to drop out of the gubernatorial race in the wake of plagiarism accusations that have rocked his campaign.
Rich Coolidge, spokesman for the secretary of state's office, said Thursday the recalls are being treated as one election, and voters cannot cast ballots in both.
He added that the state's computerized system will detect any duplicate voters.
