A phrase under Jon Keyser’s name on the primary ballot for Republican U.S. Senate candidates is causing consternation among some voters.
It reads: “Signed declaration to limit service to no more than 2 terms.”
“Pretty blatant campaigning ON THE BALLOT,” one voter remarked to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office.
“Electioneering,” one woman complained to the elections staff.
“No,” she was told. “We’re just following the constitution.”
Coloradans in 1998 approved a constitutional amendment allowing candidates who want to choose voluntary congressional term limits to declare so on the ballot and on their election materials.
