HB10-1271: Unaffiliated Lawmaker Curry Wants to Change Colo. Ballot Rules

Kathleen Curry

The only unaffiliated member in Colorado’s Legislature wants to make it easier for other independent candidates to get on the ballot, but she needs the support of the two-party system from which she walked away, the Associated Press reports. Rep. Kathleen Curry, a rancher from Gunnison, was a Democrat until last year when she announced she didn’t fit into either party and was switching her affiliation to unaffiliated. But her switch came too late for her to win a spot on the ballot as an unaffiliated candidate and now, after winning election three times as a Democrat, she’s facing the prospect of mounting a write-in campaign for re-election.
