A look behind the scenes

I had the honor to serve as a Douglas County election judge in this last election. It was my first time and I wanted to witness the process from behind the curtain. The rigorous processes included multiple safety checks and bipartisan involvement. I now having a clear understanding of how secure each and every vote is, and can say with total confidence that voters in Colorado have nothing to fear regarding voter fraud. What I’ve learned is that Colorado has one the most secure, easy to use, and efficient voter systems in the country.

What I find disturbing are those who don’t understand the systems to protect their ballot shout fraud because they didn’t get the outcome they wanted from this election. Frankly, if there was going to be widespread voter fraud, it would have extended beyond the presidency and into state and local races too.

The only crime committed within this election has been wholesale voter suppression and the use of gerrymandering. After four years of hate, divisiveness and lies, we have an opportunity to begin to heal our nation, and ensuring that everyone who is eligible to vote can. Thanks to an all-time record voter turnout, America and democracy has won over fear and hate. Let’s celebrate and unite to regain America’s respect and leadership around the world, and take action to enact policies and laws that benefit our nation.
