Glitches Halt Lottery for Park Permits at Democratic Convention

By  | 

Denver (AP) A lottery to pick which groups get to use Denver parks during the Democratic National Convention has been postponed after a protest group complained it was left out.

Katherine Archuleta, the city's liaison for the convention, said Tuesday the lottery has been rescheduled for Thursday.

A member of Denver-based recreate 68 says her name was left off applications for four of the five days she sought a permit for civic center park downtown.

Archuleta says the database of applicants appears to be accurate, but some of those applicants didn't make it onto the tickets that were to be drawn from a box.
