ELBERT COUNTY, Colo. — Secretary of State Jena Griswold appointed a supervisor to oversee the upcoming election in Elbert County following breaches of security protocol by the county’s clerk and recorder last year.
In January, Republican Clerk Dallas Schroeder admitted that he made copies of two hard drives of the county's Dominion Voting Systems equipment, received instructions from two non-election staffers on how to do so and gave images of the hard drives to unauthorized individuals. Months later, a judge ordered Schroeder to turn the copies over to Griswold.
In addition, Griswold said Schroeder misplaced dozens of ballots during the June primary election. Those ballots, reported by the county’s elections manager after the primary, were counted during the ongoing statewide recount and added to the election results.
