    Convicted of illegal voting. Then not. Then convicted again: A small Colorado town’s 4-year-old election saga continues

    After a district court judge tossed out Marie Rossmiller’s conviction for voting in the wrong precinct in a 2016 municipal election in Pitkin, a lower court reviewed the case and in July found her guilty again

    Elections can have lasting consequences, they say. But usually not like this.

    In July, Marie Rossmiller was found guilty of illegally voting in the wrong precinct for a second time after her original conviction in the case dating back four years was tossed out on appeal.

    Now, the 76-year-old is appealing her conviction — again — hoping that once and for all she can put the situation behind her and prove she did nothing wrong.

    “I have confidence that it will go behind me and I’ll march on with my life,” Rossmiller said in an interview on Tuesday. “I know that God is in control and he’s going to bring justice. That’s the way it’s been all through the ages. I know that when truth prevails, everything is going to be OK.”

    The case has its origins in the April 2016 municipal election in the small Gunnison County town of Pitkin, where there are fewer than 150 registered voters. The big-ticket items on the ballot were the contests for a few town trustee seats.
