Thousands of CO Absentees Could Have ID Problems
The Denver Post reports that Colorado election officials are warning that approximately 35,000 first-time mail-in registrants who have requested absentee ballots were not matched in the state's voter registration database and therefore need to send in a photocopy of ID with their mail-in ballots. However, there seems to be confusion amongst voters as to this requirement, and many of them may not be sending in the appropriate ID. Administrators have indicated they will treat these ballots as provisional ballots.
