Abstract Diana Bray petitioned the Court seeking to be placed on the 2020 Democratic primary ballot as a candidate for Senate after Defendant Colorado Secretary of State issued a Statement of Insufficiency of signatures Bray had collected for her petition to be on the ballot. Bray sought the following relief from the Court: 1) to stop all in-person signature gathering for candidates and ballot initiatives; 2) to permit online signature collection for candidates and ballot initiatives because face-to-face signature gathering during a pandemic and public health emergency is hazardous for circulators, candidates and the public, and does not comply with the mandate by Governor Polis to engage in social distancing; 3) to find she has made “substantial efforts to comply” with the petition requirements based on the number of signatures she submitted and order the Secretary to place her name on the primary ballot; 4) to order the parties to find an equitable resolution to the disparate and inequitable treatment of candidates; or 5) to consider an equitable resolution to this emergency.
