  • Caldara left his ballot blank, but he's still considered to have voted.
The Independence Institute's Jon Caldara wanted to make a point when he voted in the Sept. 10 recall election.

Caldara wanted to prove that he could cast a ballot, far from his Boulder home and well outside his district, without getting in any legal trouble. Caldara contended that he could legally commit voter fraud because of what he believes is a loophole in an election reform bill recently passed by the state's Democrats.

Now, the Colorado Attorney General's Office will judge whether Caldara, who cast a blank ballot in the recall of Senate President John Morse, acted illegally.

Ryan Parsell, spokesperson for the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's Office, says his office received a formal complaint against Caldara from Christy Le Lait, campaign manager for A Whole Lot of People For John Morse, filed a complaint with the Fourth Judicial District Attorney's Office concerning Caldara. In response, the Clerk's office forwarded information on Caldara to the Fourth Judicial District Attorney's Office for further review. 

Instead of looking into the matter itself, the DA's office forwarded the complaint to the Attorney General's Office to handle.

The clerk's office is still in the process of identifying any other suspected cases of voter fraud. If other cases are found, they will be forwarded to the DA.
