A spokesman for the Denver Elections Division, Alton Dillard, says they are unaware of any serious problems with mail-in ballots, though there are some changes this year that may confuse people.

In 2007, Denver elections were all mail-in only, so all registered voters received mail-in ballots.  This year, however, Denver elections will have precincts open on all voting days. Voters must apply if they want to receive a mail-in ballot. Dillard says the division has sent out three flyers so far this year to inform people of the change.

Something else new this year is a statewide voter registration database. It's an automated system that Denver and the entire state is using for the first time. Dillard says voters with any changes to their registration information are automatically sent a corrected ballot. That may explain why some people received more than one.
