Federal Judge Says No Right To Secret Ballot, OKs Barcoded Ballots

doug141 writes “A Colorado county put bar codes on printed ballots in a last minute effort to comply with a rule about eliminating identifying markings. Citizens sued, because the bar codes can still be traced back to individual voters. In a surprise ruling, Denver U.S. District Judge Christine Arguello said the U.S. Constitution did not contain a ‘fundamental right’ to secret ballots, and that the citizens could not show their voting rights had been violated, nor that they might suffer any specific injury from the bar codes.”

Seems like a fundamental protection is being violated here.

Maybe it’s just me.
