Griswold appoints election supervisor in Elbert County

Secretary of state says Schroeder violated security protocols by making copies of hard drives


Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold announced June 9 that she has appointed professional election administrator Christi Coburn as a supervisor in Elbert County for the upcoming primary election.

Coburn will monitor all decisions and actions related to the June 28 election.

Elbert County will be required to pay for Coburn's compensation and travel expenses.

The decision follows Elbert County Clerk and Recorder Dallas Schroeder's 2021 creation of copies of the county's voting system hard drives,  which he gave to two lawyers, identified in court documents as Joe Stengel and Ric Morgan.

Elbert County District Court Judge Gary Kramer ordered Schroeder, a Republican, to submit the copies to  the Democratic secretary of state in early May, and Schroeder complied.
