Dean C. Logan is the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk for LA County and has released this basic, but helpful op-ed. Although he has a controversial past in his previous post in Washington state, LAist has found Logan to be one of the most accessible politically appointed officials in the region. He and his office are easy to work with, return calls (he makes most of them) and is always looking to make things better, especially since last year's double bubble controversy that sparked when he was the interim county clerk. And now on to his writing:
Activity associated with this election has surpassed that of any election in recent history with voter registration reaching an all time high including many first-time and younger voters. This is a good sign for the health of our democratic process, but registering is only the first step. Our future rests in the hands of those eligible citizens who cast a ballot on November 4th.
Whether you are a long-time or first-time voter, your vote is important. With the expectation of high voter turnout, there are a few simple steps you can take to help make the voting process work for all of us.
