DENVER — A group of voters is suing Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler and Adams County Clerk Karen Long over reports that nearly all ballots in last month's election could be traced to the Adams County individuals who cast them.

The suit asks a judge to void the county's election. There are six plaintiffs in the lawsuit, including Adams County Republican Party Chair Gary Mikes.

According to the Denver Post ( ), the lawsuit says Long did not disclose a printing error that placed a unique voter identification number on both the ballot and the return envelope before the election.

Gessler did not immediately return a request for comment. Long has said previously voter identities were not disclosed. Long was not available for comment on Wednesday.
