Secret Ballot not So Secret in Colorado

The Coloradoan reports on a lawsuit brought forth by the Citizen Center, a non-profit located in Aspen. The group is suing six counties and the Colorado Secretary of State to better protect the traceability of votes back to the voter that cast the ballot.

Because of the way they are sorted, stored and preserved, each voted ballot in some counties — including Larimer — can be traced back to the individual who cast it, the Citizen Center claims in its federal lawsuit against six county clerks and Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler.

“We acknowledge that there are some traceable ballots,” said Andrew Cole, spokesman for the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office.
