New Security Measure: Weld County Implements GHOSTmark Technology in 2023 Election


New Voting Security Technology Piloted in Weld County

In the 2023 election, Weld County implemented a new security measure for the first time. The ballots were printed on paper stock with new GHOSTmark technology, as reported by The Greeley Tribune. This added security feature was part of a pilot program in the county, which has 222,064 active registered voters.

The use of GHOSTmark technology on the paper stock for ballots was a first for Weld County in the last election. This technology included high resolution images that are only visible under special equipment. The unique security features were aimed at ensuring the integrity of the election process and protecting the ballots from tampering or fraud.

The implementation of this new security measure was announced by the county prior to the election. It was seen as an important step towards ensuring fair and transparent elections in Weld County. The addition of GHOSTmark technology to the ballot printing process is likely to become a permanent feature in future elections, as it has proven to be an effective way to prevent fraud and maintain public trust in the electoral process.
