The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel: Colorado elections are safest in nation

In town this weekend for the Club 20 debates, Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams stopped by the Sentinel Friday to make a pitch for an endorsement.
The Sentinel won’t make endorsements until closer to when ballots hit mailboxes in October, but the record that Williams is running on is certainly worth mentioning at a time when election security is foremost on the minds of voters anticipating the midterm elections.
“Colorado has been called the safest place to vote in the country,” Williams told the newspaper editorial board. “There are at least two sources for this. One is the Washington Post and the other is Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen. There’s not much that the Washington Post and Trump’s security secretary agree on, but the fact that Colorado is the safest is one of those few things.”
