Clerk cancels Logic and Accuracy Tests

This morning, Open Records Requests were filed, by FAX, with the Boulder County Clerk and the Colorado Secretary of State – see below.

The statutory Logic and Accuracy Test, scheduled for Friday July 30th, was continued over until Sunday August 1st, at which time the test was again delayed until at least Thursday. Counting of votes on ballots cannot begin until the Logic and Accuracy Test is completed.


Dear Ms. Salas:

Pursuant to C.R.S. 24-72-203, also known as the Colorado Open Records Act, we request that you disclose the reasons and considerations for the July 31st decision to discontinue the Logic and Accuracy Test of the Boulder County equipment & procedures for qualifying ballots, and interpreting and counting the votes on cast ballots.

We are particularly interested to learn the details of any suspected or real defects in the equipment & procedures, and what is being done to address any suspected or real defects.

This request is to comprehensively include all Boulder County departments including the County Clerk's office, the County Attorney's office, Purchasing, and Data Processing.

Under C.R.S. 24-72-203(3), if such records are not in your control, you must make a written request to the custodian(s) of such records for inspection and review, at an hour certain, within three working days of this request.

We request that there be no charges to us that are not approved in advance by me.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
