"We have a remarkable line up of speakers who understand the need to protect and defend election integrity in Colorado," said Engelbrecht. "Ten counties in Colorado have more voters on its registration rolls than actual live, eligible voters. In any state, this is unacceptable, but in Colorado – a swing state in the 2012 election – there can be no room for doubt. True the Vote's program will inform and equip citizens to serve in our electoral process and help ensure free and fair elections."
WHAT: Participants who attend and media who cover the Colorado State Summit will gain access to the latest research findings, legislative updates and training methods that can help interested citizens and inspire activists across the country to strengthen the election process.
John Buckley will discuss possible irregularities in El Paso and Pueblo counties in 2008 as well as the importance of vigilance in elections. Secretary of State Gessler will discuss his recent act to prevent voter fraud with the ballots of inactive military personnel. All speakers will shed light on the importance of ensuring voter integrity in the swing state of Colorado.
