“Colorado Democrats look to crack down on insider election threats and misinformation”


Eight months after a Colorado clerk allegedly compromised her county’s election machines while searching for proof of fraud in the 2020 election, Democratic lawmakers in the state want to make it illegal for those who run elections to do much of what she’s accused of.

A new bill in Colorado would add more training requirements for election staff and officials, bar counties from copying voting machine hard drives without state permission, mandate full-time video monitoring of equipment and increase penalties for security breaches.

The legislation would also ban anyone overseeing elections from knowingly or recklessly making false statements about the process.
