Joint Legislative Hearing March 7 in LA to review Primary election problems

Next Friday, March 7, three legislative committees will hold a joint hearing in Los Angeles to review the problems faced by California voters at the 2008 Presidential Primary election, including the "double bubble" fiasco in Los Angeles.

The hearing is being organized by the State Senate Elections Committee, the Assembly Elections Committee and the Senate Select Committee on Intregrity of Elections. The chairs of those committees (Senator Ron Calderon, Assemblyman Curren Price and Senator Jenny Oropeza) will be hearing from a number of witnesses, including former Los Angeles Registrar of Voters Conny McCormack, Acting Los Angeles Registrar of Voters Dean Logan, Secretary of State Debra Bowen, Contra Costa County's Registrar of Voters Steve Weir, representatives from the League of Women Voters and Common Cause, and me. There will also be an opportunity for public comment.

The hearing will take place from 1-4 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Ronald Reagan Building located at 300 South Spring Street in downtown Los Angeles. I'm hoping there will be a visual or audio live webcast and if one becomes available I'll link to it from my blog.
