|Denver's election model will not be affected by the defeat of SB-189 in the State Legislature
“The outcome of Senate Bill 189 does not affect Denver’s election. We had announced our intentions to conduct a paper ballot election back on January 23 and have been working full steam ahead planning for the August and November elections based on that. Our election model doesn’t require any change in current law.
“As we have planned, Denver voters will have the option of voting by mail, voting in an early voting location or voting on a paper ballot in a combined precinct polling place on Election Day. We will have at least one electronic voting machine in each voting location to keep the city in compliance with the federal Help America Vote Act.
“Public mistrust of the current generation of voting machines has not abated, and I do remain concerned about the potential for renewed litigation since this legislation is indeed dead.”
