Four years after allegations that some immigrants were improperly registered to vote, election officials are wrapping up a protracted effort to remove noncitizens from the rolls. An initial effort by the state purged the names of 561 noncitizens from the voter rolls in the 46th Congressional District. The second attempt, which is now winding up, has trimmed 330 more--with nine more expected to be deleted. The effort followed charges in 1996 by former Rep. Robert K.

Worried about a backlash against immigrant voters, several hundred Latino activists demonstrated outside The Times' offices in Los Angeles and Costa Mesa on Saturday to protest coverage of alleged voter fraud in Orange County. Picketers organized by Hermandad Mexicana Nacional, a Latino rights group at the center of the ongoing controversy, waved American flags and carried placards that read "Yellow Journalism" and "Deport the L.A. Times" as they called for a boycott of the newspaper.

California Secretary of State Bill Jones has opened an investigation of possible illegal voter registration in Los Angeles County by an embattled Latino social services organization, authorities said Wednesday. The inquiry into Hermandad Mexicana Nacional followed a Times article Sunday reporting that 46 noncitizens said they registered to vote in the county with the group's assistance.

We have recently passed the one-year anniversary of the Nov. 5, 1996, election. Yet the investigations into allegations of voter fraud in the 46th Congressional District continue to spin on. That these allegations, with their attendant rancor, have caused divisiveness and discord in the community cannot reasonably be denied. Likewise, few would dispute that given the length of time devoted to the investigation, closure is necessary and overdue. It now appears that the Orange County Grand Jury may become the first investigative body to conclude its review and issue findings.
