Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams was in Aspen Tuesday (12/15). He spoke to the Pitkin County Commissioners about a new voting system meant to make elections smoother.
The Pitkin County Clerk and Recorder’s office is using voting equipment that’s 15 years old. A new system would count ballots faster and cut costs.
By the end of the month Williams will choose a new voting system that all 64 counties will eventually use. He says new technology will mean improved transparency when questions arise about election results.
