ASPEN ELECTION NOT OUT OF CONTROL (Satire - on YouTube)
Produced by betterbadnews December 14, 2009

...In Colorado early voting is taken very seriously. A ballot box set up near the mayors office gives voters something to do while waiting for their appointment with the boss.

"I know that Colorado has always allowed early voting, but this is WAY early voting...."

"My opponent set up an early voting booth next to his office in city hall...."

"but I was under no obligation to vote for anybody... wait your turn lady, when you get your
turn, you can set up an early voting booth next to your office...."

"they can't afford to let the ballots be verified.."

"If the vote tabulations have to be correct, a whole other class of people are going to be elected..."

On May 5, 2009 Aspen Colorado (CO) held an instant runoff election (IRV) for mayor and for 2 city council members. True Ballot was hired to perform a secondary scan of Premier (Diebold) designed ballots to create a cd containing scans of each ballot and interpretations of each. The interpretations were released to the public. The scans have thus far been held by the city. They and the ballots were scheduled to be destroyed November 6 2009 and now are protected under court order.
