Denver (AP) -- The Colorado County Clerks Association is opposing
efforts by Secretary of State Scott Gessler to make ballots
available for public review. The Denver Post reports that Gessler
says he wants to begin the rulemaking process to make ballots
public. The move follows a court victory for Saguache County
residents who wanted to inspect ballots in a county commissioner
and county clerk's race. Gessler wants to increase public
confidence, but the clerks group says it creates a never ending
election.
