DENVER (AP) The Libertarian Party of Colorado has filed a lawsuit challenging residency provisions of the state's new election law, but the legal challenge won't stop Tuesday's election.

Libertarian Party chairman Jeff Orrok says the law discriminates by setting different requirements in elections involving municipal races, local school districts and special districts.

According to the Denver Post, the lawsuit accuses county clerks across the state of improperly disregarding or misinterpreting residency requirements and allowing ineligible voters to register or change their addresses.

If it is successful, the lawsuit could force some races to be voted on again if the affected ballots exceed the margins of victory in those races,
