Colorado’s progressive Democrat Secretary of State Jena Griswold sents 750,000 postcards to people in her state, encouraging them to vote in the upcoming November election—the problem is, they were mailed to non-citizens and to dead people in the swing state.
Breitbart – Griswold sent a mailer to several people who are not eligible to vote, CBS4 reported, in a swing state that has a U.S. Senate seat on the ballot this year and could prove pivotal in the presidential race.
Karen Anderson said she received one addressed to her mother.
“Which sounds really nice except my mother has been dead four years and she hasn’t lived, voted, owned property, worked, or done anything other than visit Colorado since 1967,” Anderson told the news station.
CBS4 found a dozen other examples, including “a deceased woman in Las Animas County, six migrant workers in Otero County, a Canadian in Douglas County, a man from Lebanon in Jefferson County, and a British citizen in Arapahoe County.”
The state defended sending the mailers to people who are not eligible to vote, according to federal law.
“Yes, it’s true that occasionally it will go to a person that it shouldn’t go to, someone who’s already registered or somebody that’s below the age of 18, but the vast, vast majority go to the people who are eligible and then many of them follow-up and become registered voters and they get their ballot in the mail and can vote in our election,” Judd Choate, director the secretary of state’s elections division, told CBS4.
Colorado Secretary of State Griswold defends her decision to mail the registration postcards, insisting that it was not her intent to register dead or non-citizen voters, but instead, to reach potentially unregistered voters. Griswold suggests that of the 750,000 mailed postcards only a dozen or more were mailed to people ineligible to legally vote.
Denver CBS Local – Griswold says, “I think the key is that the mailing to encourage potentially unregistered people to register is not the same mailing as our ballot mailing. Those are two separate universes. When we send you a ballot or the county clerk sends out a ballot, those are to people who are registered. This postcard, encouraging people to register, goes to people who are potentially eligible but unregistered and, you know, the mailings aren’t always 100% correct.”
Griswold is a progressive secretary of state similar to Michigan’s Jocelyn Benson (D).
Both spoke at the 2020 Netroots Nation conference on “protecting the vote.”
In August, Griswold attacked President Donald Trump after he questioned vote-by-mail elections.
“The president has shown a degree of disrespect to this country that is just un-American,” Griswold declared, according to the New York Times. “There is something that we should all be able to agree on and that is well-functioning elections.”
Dead voters could be the key to Democrats winning the election in November. In August, we reported about a stunning number of dead voters who voted in Michigan’s primary election in August.
The Detroit News reported that Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office announced last Friday that 10,600 absentee ballots were rejected during the state’s August 4 primary. Of the rejected ballots, Benson’s office reported, “846 were not accepted because the voter was dead.”
