From the Denver Post:
Colorado Secretary of State Bernie Buescher is asking the federal government for a waiver of the requirement to mail ballots to military service members overseas 45 days before the November election, a move that means some ballots might not be counted.
[Spokesman Rich] Coolidge blamed late primaries and petition deadlines. He said ballots for the Aug. 10 primary also went out under short notice, but the 45-day deadline doesn't apply to those elections.
The Post notes that Colorado's Aug. 10 primary gives the state 84 days to comply. That should be enough time to get the printed and in the mail.
The more conspiratorially minded might notice that Buescher is a Democrat, that soldiers generally vote Republican and that there are some very close races in the state this year and conclude that Buescher is doing this to help his party. After all, it's not like Buescher is facing his own race in November. Oh, wait.
