DENVER (AP) - Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler says a compromise is in the works that could resolve a dispute over mail ballots for inactive voters.
Currently, county clerks are required to mail a series of notifications to inactive voters, who have to change their status in order to receive a mail ballot.
Gessler is seeking a compromise that would allow voters to receive election-related notices by email.
According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan, a lawsuit is pending in Denver and Pueblo counties that would continue to allow them to mail ballots to inactive voters.
Nearly 900,000 Colorado voters were listed as inactive by the Secretary of State on Nov. 1, just prior to the general election. The report shows there were nearly 2.8 million active voters.
