DENVER (AP) — In an effort to combat misinformation, Colorado’s Secretary of State Jena Griswold hosted a virtual town hall Thursday to discuss the state’s mail-in voting and ballot tracking system.
Griswold, a Democrat, criticized misinformation about mail-in voting she largely attributed to President Donald Trump, who has baselessly questioned the security of all-mail balloting such as that used in Colorado.
Griswold encouraged mail-in voting due to the health risks of the coronavirus pandemic and noted that there are over 350 ballot drop boxes across the state. Colorado voters can also vote in-person at voting centers. The vast majority of voting in past elections has been by mail and by dropping off ballots at the drop boxes.
