Report: Colorado not ready for electronic voting woes

DENVER, Colorado ” A study by three research groups says Colorado isn’t well prepared for problems that may crop up with electronic voting machines on Election Day next month.

The report was issued Thursday by the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University, Common Cause and the Verified Voting Foundation.

It says Colorado election regulations don’t include detailed instructions for handling problems with voting terminals. It also faults the state for not requiring counties to keep paper ballots as a backup.

Secretary of State Mike Coffman had decertified most of the electronic equipment used in Colorado in December, citing accuracy and security concerns. But he recertified all of it after testing new changes and talking to county clerks.
