Truden recall election ballot released

The Garfield County Clerk’s office released on Wednesday the ballot and the list of polling places for 9th Judicial District Attorney Colleen Truden’s recall election scheduled for Dec. 13.

The ballot question is pretty straightforward: Shall Colleen Truden be recalled from the office of District Attorney, Judicial District 9?

Voters will answer yes or no. Only those who cast a yes vote can vote for a successor for Truden. Martin Beeson is the only candidate on the ballot, in addition to a write-in selection.

The notice of recall election released Wednesday listed the reasons to recall Truden set forth by those who petitioned for the recall. In the notice, petitioners accuse Truden of dishonesty, wasting taxpayer money, nepotism, mismanagement, lack of accountability and failure to prosecute cases.

The deadline to request a mailed absentee ballot in Garfield, Pitkin and Rio Blanco counties is Dec. 2, while the deadline to request an absentee in-person ballot from either county is Dec. 9.

Precincts will be combined in Garfield and Rio Blanco counties for the recall election.
