Secretary of State Wants Paper Ballots

By  | 

Millions of dollars worth of voting equipment may go unused if the Secretary of State gets his wish. Mike Coffman is now recommending paper ballots for 2008 elections.

Last week Coffman decertified 75 percent of the state's voting equipment including Mesa County's voting machines.

Coffman said in a news release he'd rather rely on paper after his 40,000 page report found accuracy and security problems with the voting equipment.

Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Janice Rich is calling for a retest of the county's voting machines which could get them recertified.

Rich will meet with county commissioners after the holiday to discuss other options in case they don't get to retest the equipment.
