Mesa County must replace election equipment due to security breach, secretary of state says

Mesa County must replace its election equipment because it is no longer secure after an unauthorized person allegedly took photos of its passwords that were later posted online, the secretary of state’s office determined Thursday. “We need to make sure that insecure, potentially compromised pieces of voting equipment are not being used in the state of Colorado,” Secretary of State Jena Griswold, a Democrat, said at a news conference. Forty pieces of equipment, including a server, scanners and tablets, have been decertified under an order Griswold issued Thursday. Justin Wingerter, The Denver Post.
