Colorado Democrats introduce bill to strengthen election security against ‘insider threats’

Colorado Newsline: Colorado Democrats want to strengthen the state’s physical election equipment security, expand the election official certification process and increase penalties for tampering with voting systems — all in the name of combating insider threats.

“As misinformation and conspiracy theories, unfortunately, increasingly seep into our elections, we must take quick action to ensure our elections will always remain free, fair and secure,” Senate President Stephen Fenberg, a Democrat from Boulder, said during a Monday press conference.

He introduced the Colorado Election Security Act on Friday with Democratic state Rep. Susan Lontine of Denver. It is part of Secretary of State Jena Griswold’s legislative priorities this session.
