Voter info disappears from Denver office

DENVER – Records with Social Security numbers, addresses and other personal information on more than 150,000 people are missing at city election offices, and officials are trying to determine if the files were lost, moved or stolen.The Denver Election Commission is also trying to figure out why officials didn’t learn the records were missing until June 1, even though they are believed to have disappeared nearly four months earlier.”We will get to the bottom of it,” commission spokesman Alton Dillard told the Rocky Mountain News in Saturday’s editions.Police were notified Saturday. The microfilmed voter registration files from 1989 to 1998 were in a 500-pound cabinet that disappeared when the commission moved to new offices in February.Officials said they first learned of it on June 1 from City Councilwoman Judy Montero, who found out about it from an Internet blog the day before.
