Montrose Election Equipment Not Tested


According to a representative with the secretary of state's office, the Montrose County Clerk and Recorder's Office might have violated several election laws during preparations for the November election.

John Gardner, the election equipment specialist with the Secretary of State, told the Montrose County Election Review Task Force Thursday it appeared the clerk's office did not test the voting equipment prior to the election, as required by law. He presented printouts of the clerk's computer logs that did not show proper testing of the machines. Gardner also raised concerns about the clerk's office not reporting a security plan to the state. He said the clerk's actions could challenge the validity of the election.
