A county voting official running for the Republican Party nomination for Colorado secretary of state has been indicted in an investigation of election equipment tampering.

Tina Peters, clerk of Mesa County in western Colorado, faces 10 counts -- including first degree official misconduct and criminal impersonation. The case alleges she violated security protocols chasing unfounded claims the November 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump, according to a copy of the indictment obtained by the Colorado Springs Gazette.
