Who Is Buying Colorado Springs Issue 2C?

Do voters deserve to be educated on who is funding Issue 2C? I have previously written about Colorado Springs Issue 2C and have been running a small campaign against it.

Your Secret Ballot Is In Jeopardy

There are few things more sacred to Americans than a secure and secret ballot. On August 1, 2015, Vincent Carroll of the Denver Post wrote a column entitled: The high risk of e-voting pointing out some concerns with electronic transmission of military and overseas balloting. This overview should cause us all concern about both the security and the secrecy of ballots that are cast in this manner....
