Denver Botching an Election About an Election
At least 3,500 ballots for Denver's upcoming special election were mailed to the wrong addresses. Officials identified the problem late last week and were able to fix it quickly, said Alton Dillard, communications director for the Denver Election Commission. New ballots are scheduled to be delivered today to the correct addresses. Any undelivered ballots will be returned to the commission. An error by a vendor, not the commission, caused the one-question mail ballot to be sent to some voters' physical addresses instead of mailing addresses, Dillard said.Sure, it's the vendor's fault. The dog ate my ballot! Whatever. The bottom line is this: The DEC can't even effectively run an election about whether the DEC should be allowed to run an election. This story makes for great political irony, to be sure, but it also makes a pretty good case for why some sort of change - any change - is needed in Denver.
