Aspen, Colorado, Still Resists Efforts by Marilyn Marks to See 2011 Ballots

Marilyn Marks is an activist concerned about the accuracy of vote-counting machines. She has been fighting for years to force the city of Aspen, Colorado, to let her see ballots from recent city elections. Even though she did win that fight earlier around the 2009 ballots, and even though she won on the merits, she is still being blocked from seeing the 2011 ballots, according to this story. The legislature this year changed the state Open Records law to include old ballots. Of course, when she or anyone looks at old ballots, there is no way for the viewer to know which voter cast which ballot. Examining the ballots enables a hand re-count to be conducted.
