Gessler announces election integrity listening tour: Asks public for feedback on recent election

Today, Secretary of State Scott Gessler announced an election integrity listening tour. Gessler will hold public meetings, looking for citizen feedback on the recent election and soliciting changes or improvements that can be made for future elections.

“By many measures, the November election was a success. But there is always room for improvement,” Gessler said. “We want to hear from Coloradans about their experiences and how we can make our elections even better going forward.”

All events are open to the public. Citizens are invited to come share their thoughts on the election.

    Two items: we are election judges. In the recent election at the polling place, we found the room not particularly handicap friendly. There were no tables available for those in wheel chairs or were having difficulty standing. They were forced to sit at the end of the judges table in close proximity to a judge and a voter. Privace was compromised. No judge was assigned to help the handicapped maneuver through the voting process.
    Two: given the large number of Hispanics in the area of our polling place, there no signs in Spanish; no effort made to let a Spanish speaking person know that a Spanish speaking judge was available to help out someone having difficulty with the ballot, especially the initiatives; and no ballots in Spanish.


Got something to say?
