The Denver Post reports that 3,400 Coloradans have cancelled their voter registration.

It’s an action linked to the presidential commission on election integrity’s request for public information to examine past potential voter fraud and future ways to prevent said fraud.

These people are essentially giving up their freedom to vote, because they fear the disclosure of public information.

Meanwhile, the private health information of more than 800 Coloradans on Medicaid might have been inadvertently exposed by a contractor with the state’s Medicaid department.

Will anyone rush to cancel their Medicaid coverage to protect their private information?

We doubt it.
