Panel to Investigate Denver's Election Day Nightmare

November 9, 2006

Denver, CO – Denver officials intend to investigate Election Day problems after technical glitches left voters standing in line for hours on Tuesday. Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper has announced he will convene an investigative panel to look into the Election Day meltdown. He voiced his anger with the Election Commission at a news conference.

"There must be some structural flaw in there that we're not getting it right and at a certain point, you've got to say, enough is enough."

The failure of Denver's new electronic voting system meant some voters had to wait as long as seven hours to cast ballots. Hickenlooper said he was stunned by the meltdown.

"To anyone that I have talked with who deals with technology, it is incomprehensible. We went after everything we could think of and were assured that they had this under control."

Voter watchdog groups warned of possible problems in the days leading up to the election.
