					                Report to 2010 Boulder County Caucus Credentials Committee:


There were no caucus challenge forms submitted to BCDP before the March 23 rd deadline.

The Boulder County caucus data was collected by BCDP and then entered into the VAN/VB. Data
entry (delegate/alternate status and candidate preference) for all 234 precincts was re-checked by
different individuals to ensure accuracy. Each precinct’s delegate and alternate counts were audited
by comparing the number of del/alt slots allotted to the number actually elected. Entries were
checked to ensure that individuals were not mistakenly double data entered as 1.) a del+alt or as 2.)
double candidate preference. All discrepancies were checked and resolved.

The following caucus data problems were not able to be resolved by following state statute, state
party rules, or the 2010 Delegate Selection Plan and are therefore being presented to the credentials
committee for resolution.

CATEGORY #1: People who caucused at wrong PCT because they recently moved, and were
elected to be an assembly delegate or alternate:

     Toni Marinkovich (VAN ID #: 1044154) is registered in VAN as eligible in PCT 75 but attended
     caucus at her new address (625 W Pine) in PCT 15. Toni re-registered with the clerk under her
     new address but on March 8, 2010, so she missed the Feb 16 deadline. Toni Marinkovich was
     elected to be a Romanoff Delegate for PCT 15.

     David W. Wright (VAN ID #: 952595) is registered in the VAN and with the county clerk at PCT
     35 at his old address, but caucused at his new address in PCT 44. When David Wright was
     contacted by BCDP he said that he was not aware that he needed to notify the clerk when he
     moves and did not intentionally go to the wrong caucus location. David Wright was elected to
     be a Romanoff Alternate for PCT 44.

     BCDP troubleshooter recommendation: these people should not be allowed to attend the
     county assembly as a delegate or alternate. CDP 2010 DSP 3(a)(2) requires that a person be
     registered to vote in precinct the for at least 29 days prior to caucus. BCDP will notify these
     people in writing.

CATEGORY #2: People who caucused at wrong PCT because they went to the wrong room at
caucus, and were elected to be an assembly delegate or alternate:

     Michael Moran (VAN ID#: 922796) lives in PCT 125 but mistakenly caucused in PCT 139. The
     correct PCT # was written on his registration form, but he apparently went to the wrong room for
     his caucus meeting. PCT 139 was meeting at the same school as PCT 125 for caucus.
     Michael Moran was elected to be a Bennet Delegate in PCT 139.

     Eric Doub (VAN ID # 924189) lives in PCT 126 but mistakenly caucused in PCT 103. BCDP
     could not locate his registration form to verify what PCT# was written on it. PCT 126 was
     meeting at the same school as PCT 103 for caucus. Eric Doub was elected to be a Romanoff
     Delegate in PCT 103.

     Megan Beyer (VAN ID # 6657219) lives in PCT 167 but mistakenly caucused in PCT 169. The
     correct PCT # was written on her registration form, but she apparently went to the wrong room

                                                                                                   1
     for her caucus meeting. PCT 167 was meeting at the same school as PCT 169 for caucus.
     Megan Beyer was elected to be a Bennet Delegate in PCT 169.

     BCDP troubleshooter recommendation: these people should be allowed to attend the county
     assembly and serve as a delegate or alternate. Eligibility requirements to vote at caucus and
     be elected a delegate or alternate were satisfied.

CATEGORY #3: People who caucused at wrong PCT because the registration volunteer wrote
the wrong PCT# on their registration card, and were elected to be an assembly delegate or
alternate:

     Krista Hada (VAN ID#: 1068614) lives in PCT 54 but mistakenly caucused in PCT 53. The
     incorrect PCT # was written on her registration card by the registration volunteer causing her to
     caucus in the wrong room. PCT 53 was meeting at the same school as PCT 54 for caucus.
     Kristi Hada was elected to be a Romanoff Alternate in PCT 53.

     Patrick Clancey (VAN ID # 1082268) lives in PCT 39 but mistakenly caucused in PCT 30. The
     incorrect PCT # was written on his registration card by the registration volunteer causing him to
     caucus in the wrong room. PCT 30 was meeting at the same school as PCT 39 for caucus.
     Patrick Clancey was elected to be a Romanoff Delegate in PCT 30.

     William Gerlach (VAN ID # 3043195) lives in PCT 24 but mistakenly caucused in PCT 27. The
     incorrect PCT # was written on his registration card by the registration volunteer causing him to
     caucus in the wrong room. PCT 24 was meeting at the same school as PCT 27 for caucus.
     William Gerlach was elected to be a Bennet Delegate in PCT 27.

     BCDP troubleshooter recommendation: these people should be allowed to attend the county
     assembly and serve as a delegate or alternate. The error was on the part of the county party’s
     volunteers.

CATEGORY #4: People who caucused at wrong PCT because they caucused at their mailing
address instead of their voting address, and were elected to be an assembly delegate or
alternate:

     Matthew Bell (VAN ID #: 6588581) caucused at his mailing address PCT 136 instead of where
     he was eligible to caucus- at PCT 144, his voting address. When Matthew Bell was contacted
     by BCDP he said that he was not aware of this problem and did not intentionally go to the
     wrong caucus location. Matthew Bell was elected to be a Bennet Delegate for PCT 136.

     BCDP troubleshooter recommendation: these people should be allowed to attend the county
     assembly and serve as a delegate or alternate. Eligibility requirements to vote at caucus and
     be elected as a delegate or alternate were satisfied.

CATEGORY #5: Newly registered voters who missed one or both of the registration and
affiliation deadlines for caucus (and were elected to be an assembly delegate or alternate):

     Michael Sabia (VAN ID#: none) moved to Colorado from New York and registered on 2/5/10
     according to the county clerk. He was not affiliated with the Democratic Party by the January
     19, 2010 deadline, so was not eligible to VOTE at caucus. According to state rules, the
     credentials committee can allow him to be a delegate or alternate to the county assembly since
     he was registered to vote in the PCT he lived in before the February 16, 2010 deadline.
                                                                                                  2
     Michael Sabia attended caucus in PCT 156 and was elected to be a Bennet Delegate. Phone #
     917-204-5263.

     Maria Furtney (VAN ID#: none) just turned 18 and recently registered to vote. According to the
     county clerk the registration date was 3/08/10. State statute allows someone who turned 18
     with a 2 month period preceding caucus to be a delegate, so Maria is eligible. Maria Furtney
     attended caucus in PCT 136 and was elected to be an Uncommitted Delegate. Phone #: 303-
     447-9389.

     BCDP troubleshooter recommendation: these people should be allowed to attend the county
     assembly as a delegate or alternate.

CATEGORY #6: Ineligible voters (republicans or unaffiliated) who attended caucus and were
elected to be an assembly delegate or alternate:

     Mark Doug Wray (VAN ID #: 4586989) is registered as an Unaffiliated voter in PCT 179. Mark
     Doug Wray was elected to be a Romanoff Alternate for PCT 179.

     David Rajeev Rawat (VAN ID #: 1378379) is registered as an Unaffiliated voter in Arapahoe
     County. David caucused in PCT 122 (he wrote on his registration card the Boulder PCT 122
     address of his mother Racha Rawat VAN ID# 919577). David Rajeev Rawat was elected to be
     a Bennet Delegate for PCT 122.

     BCDP troubleshooter recommendation: these people should not be allowed to attend the
     county assembly as a delegate or alternate. CDP 2010 DSP 3(a)(3) requires Democratic party
     affiliation for voting at caucus and being elected a delegate or alternate. BCDP will notify these
     people in writing.

CATEGORY #7: Voters not found on registration lists (because they were marked as
deceased in the VAN) who attended caucus and were elected to be an assembly delegate or
alternate:

     Diana Adams (VAN ID#: 991493) is alive and is eligible to caucus in PCT 216. Diana Adams
     served as caucus secretary. Diana Adams was elected to be a Romanoff Alternate in PCT 216.

     BCDP troubleshooter recommendation: these people should be allowed to attend the county
     assembly and serve as a delegate or alternate. Administrative error.

CATEGORY #8: Precinct which incorrectly calculated threshold, did not allocate delegates
accurately, and selected improper candidate preferences.

     Precinct 13 had 14 caucus attendees which indicates that the number of votes a candidate
     needed to make threshold was 3. PCT 13 mistakenly wrote the threshold number as 2 but then
     also did not complete the delegate allocation worksheet that would have helped them determine
     how many delegates each candidate should receive. According to the raw votes recorded by
     this precinct, the correct allocation should have been:

           Bennet                1 delegate, 1 alternate
           Romanoff              2 delegates, 2 alternates
           Uncommitted           0 delegates, 0 alternates

                                                                                                     3
    However, this precinct elected the following:

          Bennet                0 delegates, 2 alternates
          Romanoff              2 delegates, 1 alternate
          Uncommitted           1 delegate, 0 alternates

    BCDP troubleshooter recommendation: The Bennet alternates should be allowed to choose
    between themselves who would like to be the alternate and who wants to be the delegate. The
    Romanoff delegates and alternates should be allowed to serve as recorded originally. The
    Uncommitted delegate should be disqualified.

CATEGORY #9: People elected to be delegates or alternates in absentia at cauucs, no
candidate preference recorded.

     Precinct 21 elected Christine Owens (VAN ID # 1099030) in absentia to be an alternate, but no
     candidate preference was recorded. BCDP left 4 phone messages and did not receive word
     back from her, so was not able to determine her candidate preference.

     BCDP troubleshooter recommendation: these people should not be allowed to attend the
     county assembly as a delegate or alternate.
