Despite our strong recommendations to do otherwise, the Secretary of State intends to stuff Rule-45 down the throats of the people of Colorado.
Rule-45 will establish an inept certification procedure as the law of the land in Colorado. We have appealed for a procedural change wherein the people would have a voice in this process. To date our appeals have been rejected.
I hope that you will take the time to study the document and submit comments. If this rule is adopted, we are guaranteed poor elections for years to come.
- A rulemaking hearing will be held on October 31, 2005 at 1:30 p.m. in the Secretary of State’s conference room, Suite 270, 1700 Broadway, Denver, Colorado 80290.
All interested persons will be afforded an opportunity to be heard on the subject of additions to the “Rules Concerning Certification of Voting Equipment”.
Subject of the Proposed Rulemaking - Rules establishing procedures for implementation of Title 1, Article 5, Section 616 concerning the minimum standards for electronic and electromechanical voting systems.
