Customer Question
Is signing a campaign...

Is signing a campaign petition count as your vote? Or are you able to vote at a assembly as well?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? It matters because laws vary by location.

In Colorado, Elbert County

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have been taken so far?

A candidate started running by petition, then switched to assembly and attended caucus then switched back the right back before assembly and submitted his petition. They announced he made the ballot but also admitted all signatures are not verified. However, the delegates that signed the petition are planning on voting at the assembly tomorrow. It seems to me they voted already because you have to be registered to vote to sign it

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No I just need some clarification on if this is legal. Seems wrong a candidate can switch back and forth and that voters can sign and vote different candidates

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
