"I was a target of a voter intimidation attempt by the CO Sec of State Scott Gessler (Repub). His argument was that since I was not born here, therefore I must be voting illegally (I am a naturalized citizen and registered to vote only after I was naturalized). The nice threatening letter I received from them demanding that I prove my citizenship or withdraw from the voters rolls was intimidation in its purist form.
Fortunately, I refused to be bullied and went to a meeting at his office to speak my mind. I just hope the other almost 4,000 immigrants who also got letters are equally adamant about standing up for their right. In a state like CO which is truly a purple state, it is very telling that 86% of the letters were sent to people who were registered as Democrats or Unaffiliated.
To date they have not removed my name from the voters roll. There will be hell to pay if they do."
