Denver Election Chief O'Malley Appointed to Reform Panel

Senate president Peter Groff of Denver appointed the Mile High City's chief election official, Stephanie O'Malley, to a panel set up to examine Colorado's voting systems.

The Colorado Election Reform Commission, which was created by legislation approved last spring, will study the question whether electronic voting equipment is reliable and accurate. The commission will make recommendations to the state legislature by March 2009.

Two other county clerks, Scott Doyle of Larimer County and Patty Nickell of Bent County, were previously named to the commission by House speaker Andrew Romanoff, D-Denver.
