Colorado’s primary election is taking place next week, and while many races are uncontested, there are a handful of choices for voters of both parties to make. Residents have until June 25, Primary Election Day, to do so, and registered voters should have received a ballot in the mail earlier this month. Colorado uses a mail-in ballot system, but so near to the deadline to receive ballots, the Larimer County Clerk and Recorder’s Office does not recommend sending a ballot through the mail, as that could result in delays in receiving ballots. Instead, residents are advised to drop off their ball ..read more

David G. Savage | Los Angeles Times (TNS) WASHINGTON — Fifty years ago this month, the U.S. Supreme Court was mulling a landmark case with profound implications for America’s democracy. The question before justices in the Watergate tapes dispute was whether the president was above the law, shielded from prosecutors and a judge who were investigating a crime. The court’s answer was clear, unflinching and unanimous. The Constitution has no “absolute, unqualified presidential privilege of immunity,” the court said in July 1974 in United States v. Nixon. The president’s claim of executiv ..read more
