  •  OT - but related - new sigs required in my county (none)
    This may be a good place to mention that I got a letter from our Jefferson County, Colorado Elections Dept. awhile back asking me to sign a letter and send it back. It was not signing agreement with anything; it was just signing to provide your signature. Said they needed signatures for all voters.

    I called them and said I was sure I had signed all the necessary papers to vote and that I had been voting for years. They said it was a new thing where now they're going to scan in all the signatures and they couldn't scan them from the old papers, so they need a new signature.

    I said what happens to the thousands of people who don't reply to your letter? Answer - They will be dropped from the rolls!

    What? I say. They can't vote because they didn't reply to this letter asking for a new signature?

    Oh, we'll give them a provisional ballot.

    Uh huh. If they know to ask for one, and then it gets tossed for whatever reason I'm sure. Sure sounds scammy to me.

    •  This is outrageous (none)
      has there been any press about it? Did the SoS publish anything about this?

      Yikes!

        that I'm aware of. I only know because I got a letter and then called. I don't really know how to follow up on it which is one reason I posted it here.
