Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams hit the road Wednesday, visiting with Eagle County Clerk Teak Simonton and elected officials in Mesa County.
“It’s great to get away from the Front Range and visit my friends on the Western Slope,” Williams said. “Hearing what’s going on their communities helps me make better decisions as the Colorado secretary of state.”
Williams toured Eagle County’s election division in the morning, before new equipment from Dominion Voting Systems arrived in the afternoon. It was tested today.
Simonton served on the committee that reviewed four election firms that piloted their equipment in eight counties in the November election. The committee unanimously chose Dominion as its top choice, and Williams chose Dominion so Colorado could move to a single-voting system.
“Dominion has been really terrific to work with,” Simonton said. It’s been a really easy process.”
In Grand Junction, Williams joined Mesa County elected officials who meet quarterly for lunch.
