ANNOTATION

Annotations

Annotator's note. The following annotations include cases decided under former provisions similar to this section.

The provision for acceptance of a nomination is so plain that it needs no construction other than that which its own language imports. O'Connor v. Smithers, 45 Colo. 23, 99 P. 46 (1908).

All nominees of minor political parties are required to file an acceptance. O'Connor v. Smithers, 45 Colo. 23, 99 P. 46 (1908).

And if they do not file an acceptance within the specified time, their failure to do so is equivalent to an express declination. O'Connor v. Smithers, 45 Colo. 23, 99 P. 46 (1908).

And such nomination will be treated as vacant. O'Connor v. Smithers, 45 Colo. 23, 99 P. 46 (1908).

The certificate of nomination has no force or effect if not filed within the time required by law. O'Connor v. Smithers, 45 Colo. 23, 99 P. 46 (1908).

Although nominee has already accepted a nomination for the same office upon another ticket, the secretary of state is justified in refusing to certify it for a place on the ballot where nominee fails to file his acceptance. O'Connor v. Smithers, 45 Colo. 23, 99 P. 46 (1908).

Without an express written acceptance there is just as much a vacancy as if a nominee by convention should expressly decline to accept. O'Connor v. Smithers, 45 Colo. 23, 99 P. 46 (1908).
