Colorado: District Court Judge tosses out some residency rules, upholds most other recall voting rules

A Denver District Court Judge upheld most of the Secretary of State's voting rules for the recall, but tossed out a special rule over establishing residency:
"The secretary cannot expand, contract or interpret those without a compelling state interest," McGahey said, saying earlier whoever drafted the rules clearly had never had children in college.
The rule dealt with establishing residency and would have made it difficult for college students and members of the military who temporarily live away from home.
The Court allowed the special voter cards mailed by Pueblo County Clerk to work as a valid form of ID.
