Even before Donald Trump was elected president, he complained that Colorado's voting process was "rigged." But since the state went to an all-mail voting system in 2014, there has been no proof of rigging. In fact, back in 2017, Colorado performed the nation's first-ever statewide risk-limiting audit to ensure the accuracy of the 2016 election — and came out with flying colors.
Been voting like this for years with no problems. Trump says there's a problem and suddenly people cause problems to happen.
This state leans Democratic, so statistically who exactly would benefit by dumping ballots?? Gee, I wonder...
You can track your ballot the minute it is put in the mail to you.
If you didn’t get it in the mail, request a new one. Put it in a secure box. All ballots are tracked. I put mine in the ballot drop box yesterday and received an email last night that it had been accepted for counting.
Immediate voting is available by going to the McNichols Building downtown by Civic Center on Colfax. I did this Friday and there was no line and no crowd. I don't know why this not more widely known. There is no need to wait helplessly for a ballot to come in the mail.
I work for USPS. If any of this is true, the person responsible would be terminated right away. I have heard rumors of voter suppression in low-income neighborhoods but have yet to see proof except what people post on social media. Please do research and verify such things that you report. I have not heard of any carrier dumping mail on the street not to deliver it. I think this is irresponsible journalism that took the word of someone with no actual proof. Westword (Ms. Calhoun), you're better than this.
I still think that each report must be checked out and citizens have to be aware of where their ballot is.
Any Colorado voter can sign up for BallotTrax and follow the progress of their mail-in ballot — whether they mail it or drop it in a ballot box.
