DENVER (AP) - The Latest on Colorado petition verification changes (all times local):

4:25 p.m.

Colorado elections officials are changing their vetting of voter petitions.

That’s because it took more than a month for Secretary of State Wayne Williams to learn that employees had discussed suspect voter signatures for U.S. Senate candidate Jon Keyser.

State elections director Judd Choate said Thursday they weren’t required to report the April incident to managers but will be required to do so going forward.

Keyser is seeking the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet.
