|Colorado House of Representatives District 39|
Busse filed a lawsuit asking a judge to void the result of her primary election because ballots were traceable and voting machines weren't properly secured. These issues could cause problems for the November general election if changes are not made.
Ballots in Douglas County included unique barcodes and numbers which could be used to track the ballot to the person who cast the vote, according to the lawsuit. This is a violation of the Colorado Constitution, which states that ballots shall not be marked in a way that allows them to be traced to the voter. A 1964 Colorado Supreme Court ruling also states that the use of marked ballots, or ballots numbered in a way that they can be tracked, should result in a void election.
Security lapses also occurred in Teller County, where Gessler's office stated that the county "is not prepared to properly administer elections." The following were among given concerns: electronic voting machines that weren't functioning properly, election judges who weren't trained on how to use the machines, and machines that were missing the tamper-proof seals required under Colorado election rules.
