Montezuma is suing its 61 registered voters in an effort to sort out the results of an April election that the lawsuit says was filled with errors.

The Denver Post reports that the lawsuit filed last week commands the voters to appear in court so a judge can examine the election results for mayor and town board.

Twelve people ran for mayor and Lesley Davis won by three votes. There are claims that second-home owners participated, and Davis says 13 voters and at least two candidates were not residents of the town. She says the lawsuit is the only option to determine how to move forward.

Several town residents have hired an attorney to challenge the lawsuit.
