Round-Up: Campaigns push for final voter registration; County clerks complain to Secretary of State Gessler

October 8, 2012

The deadline to register to vote in the 2012 election is tomorrow. KUNC’s Kirk Siegler reports both presidential campaigns are in an all out blitz to register voters up until the last minute....

Meanwhile, the Colorado County Clerk’s Association has issued a four-page letter of complaint to Secretary of State Scott Gessler over new voting systems in place this year. Among the grievances include new mobile registration applications, which clerks say weren’t properly tested and required emergency rules. The clerks also took issue with a new policy for overseas voters, saying a print-your-own-ballot system for overseas voters was also improperly tested and has led to problems. The clerks requested an in-person meeting with Gessler.
