County Clerks are going berserk in Colorado

They want to keep the DRE machines, which the SoS, Mike Coffman, has decertified, insisting that the state use op-scans instead. The clerks say that it's not the DRE's that are defective, but the tests used to appraise the DRE's; and some of them are even threatening to use the DRE's, decertified or not. They say they don't have time to buy the op-scans, don't know how to use them, blah blah blah.
The simplest course, if I may be so bold, would be to dump all those computerized machines, op-scans and DRE's alike, and just hand-count the paper ballots. And if the clerks refuse to do that, they should quit. I'm sure there are a lot of capable and civic-minded Coloradans who would thrilled to have those jobs.
