Access to documents latest battle in Broomfield anti-fracking election

From the Broomfield Enterprise:  Another challenge has been levied against the Broomfield elections division, which is already mired in controversy surrounding the Nov. 5 election, and more specifically the outcome of the vote on a five-year ban on fracking.

The latest issue is a debate over whether some of Broomfield’s election-related documents are available to the public, which will be settled by a judge.

Monday, Broomfield officials and representatives of a voter advocacy group, Citizen Center, appeared before District Court Judge Francis Wasserman to argue the future of certain ballots and ballot-related information from the Nov. 5 election.

Citizen Center president Marilyn Marks argued certain election material should be accessible to the public, such as vote logs and duplicated ballots. Yet Broomfield election officials said they want permission from a judge before granting access to the documents.
