AP reports via 9NEWS:
Colorado’s election chief says many of the nearly 800 people who registered to vote using a mobile device may not be registered because of a website glitch from Sept. 14 to Sept. 24.
Republican Secretary of State Scott Gessler urged those people Wednesday to verify their status and register again if they don’t show up on the system.
The “glitch” in question appears to have resulted in the loss of 779 voter registrations otherwise properly entered into the mobile-enhanced official registration website. Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler’s office is unable to determine who was not properly registered, because apparently no data was captured by the faulty mobile version of this website.
Just an innocent mistake, right? Not by a long shot, folks.
While Gessler has spent weeks fruitlessly in search of “illegal voters” who, as it turns out, exist pretty much exclusively in his imagination, he has allowed a problem in the state’s voter registration system to screw up the registrations of many times the paltry number of voters Gessler ultimately “identified”–and even most of those 141 voters are turning out to be legally registered. Gessler’s office admitted yesterday that testing of recent software updates to the mobile voter registration site was not sufficient, and that is what caused this glitch.
Add it all up, and there’s really only one conclusion.
Scott Gessler fixates on problems that don’t exist, while neglecting basic responsibilities.
