The City and County Clerk for Broomfield conducted a coordinated election on November 5, 2013. At that election, Broomfield voters narrowly approved one of the questions on the ballot, Ballot Question 300, a five-year ban on hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking." There was a 17 vote margin of victory. State law requires a mandatory recount if the difference between the votes "For" a question and the votes "Against" a question is less than or equal to one-half of one percent of the votes cast for prevailing choice. In this instance, the 17-vote difference fell within that margin, triggering a mandatory recount. This report outlines the Office's concerns with the City and County of Broomfield Coordinated Election. As of the date of this report, and based on the information provided by the Clerk's office, the Clerk's errors in conducting the election cast doubt on the legality of numerous votes. The conclusions in this report are based on the most current information available. These conclusions may change if different information comes to light.
