Institute national paper ballots

To the editor,

I’m proud that Colorado makes use of hand-marked paper ballots, and I support a national requirement for 100 percent hand-marked, hand-counted, verifiable elections. We don’t have that now, and some ballot-marking devices are not verifiable.

We all agree that we need to fix this. However, every lawsuit brought about the 2020 election was thrown out, even by Trump-appointed judges. He was allowed all appeals. Once those failed, he attempted to manipulate his followers to attack our legislative branch. Police officers died. Convicting him for this will allow other Republican leaders to emerge.
