From: Dwight Pelz Sent: Monday, February 11, 2008 3:45 PM To: Luke Esser Subject: Dean is available
I can get Dean Logan in on short notice.
It's nice that state Democratic Party Chairman Dwight Pelz is reaching across the aisle to help Republican Chairman Luke Esser. But it seems like Logan, the former King County elections director that Republicans loved to hate, is pretty busy these days at his new job in Los Angeles. There are some presidential primary votes that won’t be counted. From the L.A. Times:
Logan said he understood the anger and frustration that many voters have expressed over the ballot confusion.
"Any time a vote is not counted because of an administrative burden it is significant," he said.
Voter advocates challenged Logan's decision and said he should examine each nonpartisan ballot.
"Mr. Logan and the county have at their disposal the means to count the votes and ascertain voter intent in nearly all cases," said Rick Jacobs, chairman of the Courage Campaign. "Anything short of that is unacceptable disenfranchisement of L.A. County voters."
