Ritter Signs Voting Machine Recertification Bill

Gov. Bill Ritter signed into law Monday a bill that will allow Secretary of State Mike Coffman to re-test electronic voting machines used around the state.

Coffman had ruled the machines unreliable, and therefore unavailable for use in elections in the state this year, in mid-December.

HB 1155 had broad bipartisan support in both chambers of the General Assembly.
