Pitkin County Allows Limited Ballot Review

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – Pitkin County election officials say they will allow limited inspection of ballots cast in the 2010 election after the Colorado Court of Appeals ruled ballots must be made public as long as they don’t identify voters.

According to the Aspen Daily News, County Clerk Janice Vos Caudill said Monday she will allow people to inspect five to 10 ballots while the decision is being appealed to the state Supreme Court.

The ruling came in a lawsuit by Aspen resident Marilyn Marks, who ran against incumbent Mayor Mick Ireland and lost. The appeals court overturned a district court ruling that ballots are secret.
