State to send election observer for Colorado Springs municipal election

Friday, Secretary of State Scott Gessler announced his office will designate an election observer for the April 5th municipal election in Colorado Springs. The designation is welcomed by City Clerk Kathryn Young and comes in response to her request and requests for oversight by several candidates in the election.

“We all share the desire for open and fair elections,” Secretary Gessler said. “We welcome the opportunity to send observers from the Secretary of State’s office at the invitation of the city. I compliment Clerk Young’s willingness to be open and transparent. And we also thank the candidates for working to ensure the integrity of the election.”

Following discussions with city officials, members of the Secretary of State’s office will be present in the formal election observer role. That means observing all processes involved in the preparation and conduct of the election.
