Men filming voters in Littleton were ‘first amendment auditors,’ police say

Colorado Community Media: Two men, one armed, who filmed voters dropping off ballots in Littleton on Nov. 2 were “first amendment auditors” and not cited by police, city and county officials said.

The men, whose names were not immediately available, drew the attention of county staff as they filmed voters dropping off ballots outside the Arapahoe County administration building on South Prince Street, said county spokesperson Luc Hatlestad. One of the men was carrying a holstered handgun and wearing a “tactical” vest, Hatlestad said.

“Our staff asked them what was going on, and someone inside the building called police,” Hatlestad said.

Responding officers determined the men were “first amendment auditors,” said Cmdr. Trent Cooper, Littleton Police Department spokesman.
