This info is from Chaffee County’s Dominion Voting Systems for the 2023 election. They use two main sources: the Cast Vote Record (CVR) and the Dominion Voting Systems ballot scanner log. The CVR shows details about votes on each ballot, and the scanner log tells when they scan batches of ballots.
Mail-in ballots are collected until there are enough for scanning. Then they scan about 50 at a time.
Finally, let’s look at the three races for the Buena Vista school board: Brett Mitchell versus Casey Martin, Mallory Brooks versus Montana Brown, and Paula Dylan versus Trinda Windle.
In these three races, there are no sudden changes in how votes are going. This is different from what we saw in the Kuhn versus Stephens and the Berndt versus Pappenfort races, making those races more interesting and curious.
I submitted a CORA request for the key card access log for the election ballot area for the period from October 23, 2023, to November 22, 2023.
There were 247 entries from 10/23 to 11/21. Election day was 11/7.
Name # of entries Notes
Adam Miller 1 Entered at 4:13 pm on 11/2
Barb Tidd 5
Election Judge 24 Latest enter time of all entries = 10:16 pm on 11/7

Shilo DeLeo 90 Earliest enter time of all entries = 6:58 am on 11/7
I found it a little strange that Adam and Kelli entered the room only once. Is Adam a Sheriff? The earliest and latest enter times were around 7am and 10pm; nothing strange there. The “Election Judge” name is strange. Was there only one election judge that had a key? Were there multiple Election Judge key cards?
After pointing out to the Chaffee County Commissioners that the chain of custody had been broken on the 2022 election ballot boxes, the 2023 logs are okay. Two signatures are required each time a box is opened, and that’s what happened in the 2023 election.
HICCUP paid $125 for the records, that the County said would take 5 hours to prepare (excessive). You can download the file here:
