ICYMI: Denver Post “Democratic legislators are wrong to push for same-day registration in Colorado…”


April 18, 2013

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.—This morning, The Denver Post became the latest major news publication to out against Colorado Democrats’ same day voter registration proposal.  House Bill 1303, which was written by union bosses, liberal special interest groups and Democratic Party lawyers, will allow same day voter registration without any adequate safeguards to ensure the integrity of our elections.

In an editorial, The Denver Post lays out a series of problems with the Democrats’ proposal--

- “We have concerns, however, about the bill's move to same-day voter registration. We worry the bill mandates a timeline that is too aggressive, particularly since it relies on technology that hasn't been tested.” (“What's the rush on same-day voter registration in Colorado?”, The Denver Post, 04/18/13)

-“It's a chicken-and-egg argument: Without the bill, there would be no imperative to create the real-time, Web-based access to the state's SCORE voter registration database. But you can't test what doesn't exist.” (“What's the rush on same-day voter registration in Colorado?”, The Denver Post, 04/18/13)

-“Democrats would have had this input had they included him in the creation of the bill, but they didn't. Rep. Dickey Lee Hullinghorst, D-Boulder, told us Gessler, a Republican, was excluded because he had ‘neither a willingness nor a common goal’ in pursuing election reforms.” (“What's the rush on same-day voter registration in Colorado?”, The Denver Post, 04/18/13)

-“When we told Donetta Davidson, head of the Colorado County Clerks Association, that the secretary's Internet technology specialist, whom she knows, had a problem with the timeline, she immediately gave credence to the concern. ‘I would never question [his] integrity,’ she said.
