-Aspen's historic May 5, 2009 IRV election audited as single ballots- 5/5/09 Aspen CO held an instant runoff election (IRV) for mayor and 2 council members. Interpreted contents of each ballot, scanned by True Ballot, were publicly released. Open records requests for a CD of image scans were denied. Aspen has been sued to protect records from destruction and to allow inspection of the scanned ballot files. A Court of Appeals ruling holds that unidentifiable ballots are public records.

Marilyn Marks' comment: Although the City does not have a copy of the complaint, Mr. Springer, claims that the complaint has "no merit," -- presumably without reading it. He also claims that the there were "no violations of any election laws." If it is not a violation of election law to leave the keys on/in the ballot box, I can't imagine what would be a violation. That is one example of many--like failing to use certified software.
Interestingly he claims that it is the "most open, honest, well-run election" in Colorado. Surely many jurisdictions will take issue with that!
