Colorado: Claims that new election law opens recall to anyone in the state; Media Matters disputes
As with other stories like this, I highly doubt that there will be any impact on the recall, but here is the discussion. A number of conservative-focused media, including the editorial page of Pueblo Chieftan, has reported claims that a Colorado law will allow any voter to claim that they will move to the two recall district in the next month and then be able to vote on Election Day. The liberal website Media Matters finds the claim specious, stating that only individuals who already moved into the district can vote immediately (and then they can attest that they intend to stay).
