Colorado’s top election official orders Elbert County clerk to disclose information about alleged election system hard drive copy

The Colorado Sun: Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold is ordering Republican Elbert County Clerk Dallas Schroeder to disclose how he allegedly made a copy of his county’s voting system hard drive.

Griswold, who says the image would represent “a potential breach of security protocols,” on Monday issued both an order requiring Schroder to reveal the method he used to make the alleged copy and an order requiring him to appear before her office to be deposed.

“The Elbert Court Clerk has failed to respond to both an email request and an election order requiring disclosure of information about this potential breach. That is why I am now taking further action,” Griswold, a Democrat, said in a written statement. “As secretary of state, my top priority is to ensure that every eligible Coloradan – Republican, Democrat and independent alike – has access to secure elections and I will always protect Colorado’s election infrastructure.”
