    So LA voters won’t be able to vote if there’s no internet connection for check-in? And they don’t extend voting hours because there’s a risk that more people might show up to vote?? Wow–very brilliant.

      That is a great point that for all the machines that were down over the course of two weeks, that time should be given back to voters. Interesting to see was there a pattern to in what district the most voting machines were not working. Remember, Dean Logan promised that everything had already been tested.

    There was a lack of really clear information about voting choices. Terminology like “vote by mail” “absentee voting” “polling pass” “early voting” (as opposed to what). Early on I suggested to the county that at the start of the 11th day before March, they call that day (Feb 22) election day. But they did not do that so many organizations called March 3 election day; so obviously you are sending mixed signals by telling people vote early or vote on March 3.. The county registrar seems to have sent the sample ballot booklet book out in stages, not all on the same day. Cutting the Vote Centers from 2000 to 500 was not compensated by having voting over an eleven day period including weekends because many people were still being told “March 3” is election day. Sometimes the people putting out the mailings understand the technical language, but for the average voter things must be explained in more simple terms. I would bet that even with all this advanced technical mumbo jumbo, the vote count did not appreciably increase with weekend voting, simply because voters were confused, machines were breaking down , centers were not open, etc. These are simple fixes to me.

    Yes, as I said before, Dean Logan needs to be replaced. as told told to SENATOR BEN ALLEN. I also bring to your attention (thanks for the like) that the sample ballot and vote by mail ballot both read in part, “Write-in candidates. A voter is entitled to cast a vote for a qualified write-in candidate for any party nominated, voter nominated or non-partisan office by writing, on the write-in portion of the ballot, the name of the qualified candidate.” I have written the LA city election clerk, Secretary of State Alex Padilla, and the county registrar, around Feb. 22, because I believed the Vote Center Ballots did not have the same “write-in candidate” note on them as the sample and VBM ballots. I am still trying to verify this with the County and getting no response. I feel for this election, and the November election, that all ballots should substantially match in wording, otherwise the voter is subjected to a process that is not equitable and not transparent. It robs the voter of information that they are entitled to. Every voter is entitled to a fair election, even if there are certain well known candidates who fight against that.
