Colorado Secretary of State Election Night Reporting – Official Results

A Statement from El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman

[Colorado Springs, Colo. – November 2, 2021] The El Paso County Elections Department has many safeguards in place to ensure the accuracy and validity of the vote totals when they are reported to the public. While uploading our first results of the evening with the bipartisan canvass board, who are appointed by the two major political parties, we discovered there was an issue with the card cast totals matching the figure that would have been reported by the Colorado Secretary of State’s (SOS) Election Night Reporting system.

It is of the utmost importance that any results reported by the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office are 100% accurate. The Election staff and bipartisan canvass board reviewed and approved all results by verifying the accuracy twice before publishing. The delay in results was due to an abundance of caution and we are confident our safeguards work.

While the SOS Office has corrected this issue on their Election Night Reporting System, we look forward to hearing updates from them regarding the root cause of the issue and learn what may have transpired with the Election Night Reporting system.

Overview

On August 11, 2017, under former Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams, Colorado adopted a revised Secretary of State Rule 18 establishing Uniform Ballot Counting Standards for Paper Ballots. This rule sets specific standards for counting ballots, to include the duplication and adjudication procedures for applicable ballots. Duplication is the process of copying a ballot that cannot be read. Adjudication is the process of resolving voter intent on the ballot prior to tabulation. These processes are designed to ensure each Coloradan’s vote is accurately recorded.
