Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Sheila Reiner is among Clerks in six counties named in a federal lawsuit filed yesterday.  A group of Colroado voters filed the suit saying election practices in those counties are unconstitutional  because they allow some ballots to be traced to the person who cast them.  The Denver Post says clerks have denied requests to make the ballots public, but the group called Citizen Center, says allowing inspection would strengthen voter confidence in the election processes.
