DENVER (AP) -- Two Colorado Democrats facing legislative recalls because they supported gun-control measures got a new wrinkle to contend with Monday. A Denver judge rejected part of a new elections law that said the recalls would be all-mail elections, giving third-party candidates more time to join the races.

Denver District Judge Robert McGahey sided with Libertarians who sued to get additional time for third-party candidates. The Sept. 10 recall elections are the first in state history for members of the Legislature.

Sens. Angela Giron of Pueblo and John Morse of Colorado Springs currently face only Republicans in the recall votes. Colorado's elections chief says the Sept. 10 recalls will go forward, but not as all-mail elections.
