Colorado lawmakers say they’ll continue using secret ballot system to help decide fate of bills

KUNC: Colorado lawmakers will continue to use a secret ballot system this year that transparency advocates say violates the state’s open meeting laws.

Lawmakers call the secret survey “quadratic voting,” and House Speaker Julie McCluskie, D-Dillon, said last week that the legislature will use it again this session to help them decide which bills should get funding and pass.

“So yes, we will be using a similar process,” she said.

McCluskie said the results of the secret survey would be released to the public, which would be a change from previous sessions.
