Colorado Secretary of State is investigating allegations that some election judges are Democrats posing as Republicans

October 29, 2014

 Colorado law, according to this story, requires that election judges be equally split between Republicans and Democrats and it has been alleged that some of the judges are actually Democrats who are posing as Republicans.

  Colorado’s Secretary of State, Scott Gessler, is investigating the accusation. Here is more:

The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office is investigating the makeup of Boulder County’s election judge teams after allegations that county officials stacked the ranks of mail-in ballot watchers with Democrats, including some posing as Republicans.

Deputy Secretary of State Suzanne Staiert confirmed Tuesday night that state election officials visited the Boulder clerk’s office and found some troubling inconsistencies with some election judges.

“One of them was a Democrat who had changed party affiliation on Oct. 10, so we are concerned that Boulder didn’t follow the list, then resorted to advertising for these positions,” said Staiert, a member of Republican Secretary of State Scott Gessler’s staff.

“We are concerned about the numbers, and we are concerned that people switched parties simply to serve as judges,” Staiert said. “We’re looking into it, and we will continue to work with the county and the chair so they can have confidence in the election.”

   colrado I have heard stories about some lifelong Democrats who are so upset with what the Democrats in Washington have been doing that they have decided to vote Republican this time around, and a recent poll by Harvard shows that young voters prefer a Republican led Congress, so it is quite possible there is nothing to this story.

  However I would ask: How many people switch parties AND decide to become election judges? The motive must be questioned to ensure the sanctity of the franchise. This is very troubling indeed if it turns out people are switching parties just to stack the deck, especially in light of the fact they are in charge of overseeing the mail-in ballots and  Boulder County GOP Chairwoman Ellyn Hilliard claims to have already seen some inconsistencies:

Hilliard also said she witnessed some election judges approving signatures on mail-in ballots that did not match those of the voters.

    Was it Stalin that said “its not the vote that count; but who counts the vote that is important.”

    It is suspicious, as you say, when someone changes parties and then immediately becomes an election judge. Trust but verify!

    We have become nothing more than a Banana Republic regarding our election. Plus Colorado can register online the same day as they vote. Go figure that one.
