One reason the 2020 presidential election was called the “most secure in American history” was that election administrators across the political spectrum faithfully put the conduct of free and fair elections before any partisan or personal interests. Until Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters demonstrates a similar commitment, she should be barred from resuming her role overseeing the conduct of its elections.

While conspiracy theorists, who did not respect the will of the voters in the 2020 presidential election, attempt to replace impartial election officials in positions across the country, in Mesa County, the perpetrator has already been inside the building. Despite occupying Mesa County’s top election official role since 2018, Clerk Peters has not overseen the county’s elections since August 2021, when she was stripped of her election official duties by the Colorado Secretary of State.
