Reader: Scott Gessler's office removed me from voter rolls, never explained why

Sam Levin has written a number of recent posts about controversial Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler.

His latest, about a lawsuit against Gessler by Denver Clerk Debra Johnson, prompted one reader to share his own problems getting and staying registered to vote.

They were never able to give me a reason for removing me from the rolls in the last election. They just take your name off for no reason at all. I called voter registration every day and it was removed 3 days after the deadline to register. But as of today I am still registered.
