Gessler deems recall petition for Senator Giron sufficient

Denver, June 24, 2013 - Today Secretary of State Scott Gessler announced the petition to recall Senator Angela Giron (SD-3) was found sufficient.

On June 10, 2013, the proponents of the recall effort submitted 13,466 petition signatures to the Secretary of State. The Secretary of State's office began an immediate line-by-line review of the signatures. The proponents were required to gather 11,285 valid signatures, equaling 25 percent of all the votes cast in the previous election for Senate District 3. The total number of valid signatures on the petition was 12,648.

Under Colorado law, any eligible elector can file a protest with the Secretary of State within fifteen days to challenge the validity of the petitions. Barring a successful protest at the conclusion of the protest period, the Governor will be responsible for setting an election date.
