Chieftain Endorses Grantham's Bill Giving Two Year Timeout to Last Years Flawed Election Reform

STATE SEN. Kevin Grantham, R-Canon City, is poised to introduce legislation to delay implementation of Colorado’s new election reform laws for two years. We fully endorse his efforts.

Grantham, and anyone concerned with the continued integrity of our state’s elections, sees trouble on the horizon if the current elections laws aren’t repealed or significantly changed.

Under House Bill 13-1303, which was approved by the Legislature and signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper in 2013, Colorado voters receive election ballots in the mail to make voting convenient. Voters also can register to vote on the day of an election, thanks to the new law, and their official residency can be established by a verbal statement rather than an official identification card. The law also eliminated neighborhood precinct polling sites and replaced them with fewer centralized voting service centers.
