Voter Identification Hearing 

The Committee meeting, where you, the public, will have a chance to voice your concerns about loosening the ballot identification requirements, will be from 10:00 to 12:00, tomorrow, Thursday, September 30, at 1560 Broadway in downtown Denver. That's the Denver Post building, and you can't possibly miss it. It will be on the 2nd floor.

Should you decide to go, please email the Secretary of State's office so they have enough copies of the proposed rule changes on hand.

The Secretary of State is an elected, partisan position, but they've been the good guys on this so far. Mrs. Davidson is taking as hard a line on this as she reasonably can, but if it looks like public opinion is going the other way, she may have no choice but to relax the rules. Adverse court rulings either here or in Missouri may mean the state has to retreat, but a strong showing of support can influence the outcome.

No word yet on whether or not you have to sign in.

UPDATE: The time had been listed incorrectly. It is now correct.
