Chris Green recently moved from Aurora to Centennial, changed his voter registration and left town for two weeks.

The 51-year-old said he had never moved so close to an election before so he was a little unsure how it would work out. But when he returned over the weekend he found his ballot in his mailbox, along with the “Blue Book” to help inform him how to vote on the ballot questions.

“I was also able to easily drive by a drop box at the Greenwood Village City Hall on my way to work this morning to submit my ballot in a matter of minutes,” he wrote in an e-mail Tuesday to the Colorado secretary of state.

“I am sure there will be numerous reports about issues with the system today. I wanted to take a moment to let you hear about an experience of one voter who thinks you got it right as you possibly could have for me.”

He called the situation “textbook perfect.”

“Nice to know things work like they are supposed to in spite of rumors to the contrary,” Green added.

It’s always nice to get positive feedback but the applause goes to Arapahoe County Clerk Matt Crane and his elections director, Jennifer Morrell.
