COFFMAN: UNFUNDED FEDERAL MANDATE IS TOO COSTLY

Washington bureaucrats shouldn’t decide who uses bilingual ballots

GUEST COLUMNIST

The right to vote is sacred. When I was the Colorado Secretary of State I worked hard to make sure that every U.S. citizen who called our state home and had the legal right to cast a ballot was afforded the opportunity to do so, but I fail to see how a portion of the 1973 Voting Rights Act contributes to that by forcing an increasing number of local governments to use bilingual ballots all across the United States.
