CORTEZ, Colo. (August 14, 2014) The small mountain town of Montezuma, Colo., is suing its 61 registered voters in an effort to sort out the results of an election in April that the lawsuit says was filled with errors.
The suit filed last week commands the voters to appear in court so a judge can examine the election results for mayor and town board.
Twelve people ran for mayor and Lesley Davis won by three votes.
But there are claims that owners of second homes in the town participated.
Davis says 13 voters and at least two candidates were not residents of the town.
She says the lawsuit is the only option to determine how to move forward.
Several town residents have hired an attorney to challenge the lawsuit.
