"We enthusiastically support Secretary Coffman's recommendation that Colorado move to paper ballots," said Myriah Conroy, a plaintiff in the Colorado voters' 2006 lawsuit. "We are pleased that Secretary Coffman has recommended that Colorado join with California, Florida, Michigan, and Ohio in rejecting the widely discredited DRE voting systems. DRE computerized voting systems are easily hacked and compromised, and have a history of operational problems that have disrupted elections across the country. For that reason we believe that the Secretary should support electronic ballot-marking devices, not DRE computerized voting machines, to accommodate voters with disabilities. Nonetheless, the Secretary's decision to support paper ballots represents a major milestone on the path to election integrity in Colorado," said Conroy.
