2016 General Election*
Neither Boulder County Republican Canvass board member signed the Certification of 2016 General Election. Their Minority Report should be read by every person who is appointed to a Colorado Canvass board. HERE is the Boulder County Republicans Chairman's reply to the county clerk's press release.
*NOTE: This is the first election in Colorado where the COUNTY CLERKS – NOT THE VOTERS – “CAST” BALLOTS. The new definition, Rule 1.1.8, states that: “Ballots Cast” means the total number of ballots received by the county clerk in an election. “Ballots Cast” does not include mail ballot envelopes returned to the county clerk by the U.S. Postal Service as undeliverable.
2016 Primary Election
Both Republican Canvass board members refused to sign the Certification of 2016 Primary Election "based on the duties of CRS 1-10-101.5 (1) (a) to reconcile ballots cast." After this election, Secretary of State Wayne Williams changed the definition of “ballots cast” from the historically accepted term describing a voter’s action and redefined it to be an action determined by the clerk. Colorado voters no longer cast their ballots. See: Why BCR Didn’t Certify 2016 Elections
