The Office of the Chaffee County Clerk and Recorder has confirmed that Dr. Alison Brown, Republican candidate for County Commissioner, District 3, has submitted the required number of signatures as a petition, to qualify for placement on the June 28, 2022 Chaffee County primary election ballot. She received a statement of sufficiency from Chaffee County Clerk and Recorder late Tuesday.
On March 3, 2022, Brown submitted 332 petition signatures to the Elections Office of the Clerk and Recorder. Of these, 54 signature entries were rejected and 278 signature entries were accepted.
Under Colorado law C.R.S. 1-4-801(2)(a), a prospective candidate’s petition must contain a number of valid signatures equaling at least 10 percent of the number of votes cast in the last primary election for office in order to meet the requirement.
Brown’s submission of 278 valid signatures exceeded the minimum of 216 signatures required by statute.
Petition Verification Summary:
Number of signatures submitted: 332
Number of entries rejected: 54
Number of entries accepted: 278
Number of valid signatures required: 216
A record of the petition is on file at the Chaffee County Clerk and Recorder’s Office and will be maintained as a public record.
The District 3 Board of County Commissioners seat is currently held by Rusty Granzella (R) who is not seeking reelection in the November, 2022 general election.
