EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. (KRDO) -- The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's Office says it will start testing voting equipment Tuesday to ensure its accuracy ahead of the 2020 election.

The "Logic and Accuracy" test will include testing of "the Central Count Optical Scanners, and Voter Service and Polling Center ballot marking devices."

The event is open to the public but spectators must maintain social distancing and wear a face mask, according to the clerk's office.

The test will start Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the Peterson Counting Room on the second floor of the Citizens Service Center in Colorado Springs. Officials say they expect the test to be complete Friday.

  1. “One study indicated that the country intervening in most foreign elections is the United States with 81 interventions, followed by Russia (including the former Soviet Union) with 36 interventions from 1946 to 2000—an average of once in every nine competitive elections.” – Shulman, Stephen; Bloom, Stephen (2012). “The legitimacy of foreign intervention in elections: the Ukrainian response”. Review of International Studies. 38 (2): 445–471. doi:10.1017/S0260210512000022. Retrieved 12 January 2017.

    So in these 54 years, America interfered in 81 different elections in different countries.

    Based upon this track record, what would make me believe that any American election is not rigged to have the pre-selected personnel the lobbyists want in these positions. Follow the money you find who is in charge of our country. The Government is just a backdrop or splash-shield that protects the real people in charge of our country, the lobbyists and banks. One only has to be a student of history to see what is going on, this isn’t a different script than what has been done several times before.

    If there is no solid foundation, then why build a house on top of it. If our government has interfered 81 times in other countries, why would we believe that our own government didn’t also begin doing this during that same period here in America. Our Government would have to keep a solid foundation where there was a matching ideology that allowed this to persist and continue since as most recently as 2000 as the quote above indicates.

    Thus why both political parties have more in common with the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) than they do with real politicians.
