ANNOTATION

C.J.S. See 29 C.J.S., Elections, § 118(3).

The fact that several candidates have been designated by the party assembly does not preclude a petition candidate from having his petition accepted by the secretary of state (or county clerk, as the case may be) and his name listed as a candidate for his party's nomination on the primary ballot. Anderson v. Mullaney, 166 Colo. 533, 444 P.2d 878 (1968) (decided under former law).

Petitioner's name allowed to appear on ballot. Where the secretary of state accepted and approved the petition filed by petitioner and no objections were filed as to the validity of his petition, there was no issue in reference to his right to appear on the primary ballot as a candidate by petition and his name did appear. Anderson v. Mullaney, 166 Colo. 533, 444 P.2d 878 (1968) (decided under former law).
