Los Angeles County elections are the envy of officials throughout the country. "Los Angeles is an extremely special case," said Michael Shamos, an attorney and computer expert who certifies electronic vote-tabulation systems for the state of Pennsylvania. "Nobody else spends that kind of money." The county elections budget for the 1988-89 fiscal year is $23.5 million.

Craig (Tax Freeze) Freis, a Glendale tax-reduction advocate, filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court this week for the right to have his nickname printed on the June primary ballot. "My name is alliterative, it will help people identify what I stand for," Freis said of his suit, filed against Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder Charles Weissburd after he was informed that the nickname was not acceptable for use on the ballot. Freis has filed to run against county Supervisor Mike Antonovich.

They included the young and old, rich and poor, well-educated professionals and lifelong laborers for whom college was a dream for future generations. At a nondescript county office off Interstate 5 in Norwalk, they converged Saturday to exercise one of the most sacrosanct of their new rights. They came to register to vote for the first time as U.S. citizens. "I'm just so excited," gushed Sandra Schaffner, a native of Canada who reared three U.S.

The laminated wall calendar in Conny McCormack's office says today is July 26. In McCormack's head, though, this is E minus 73, and every day that goes by between now and Oct. 7 is one day less that she has to organize the special election for the recall of Gov. Gray Davis for Los Angeles County. So while many Californians are bracing for the political pyrotechnics of a truncated gubernatorial campaign, McCormack, the Los Angeles County registrar, is getting to work.

I was doing the breakfast dishes when she popped the question last month: "What do you say we go to City Hall today and get married?" Just like that. The idea was as inspired as it was sudden. Though we defied marriage through seven years of living together, that stance was crumbling amid talk of having kids. If we were finally giving in, how better than by eloping? So simple. Spur of the moment. A touch romantic--like in the movies, without the ladder.

The state Legislature voted Friday to have Los Angeles County election officials take over the recall election targeting four City Council members in Lynwood. The unanimous vote by the Senate and Assembly comes on the heels of a Superior Court judge's ruling that the election will take place Sept. 25. The unusual step was taken because the Lynwood City Council had resisted allowing the recall election to go forward.

The Los Angeles County registrar-recorder's office, the largest such operation in the nation, faces a looming shortage of poll workers that could jeopardize the integrity of elections, according to an audit released Friday. "Without a long-term poll worker strategy," auditors report, "the ability of the [county] to address the thousands of small balloting issues and glitches that occur at the polls may be compromised, resulting in disenfranchised voters and invalid ballots."

If you want to participate in the democratic process but can't stomach the idea of working for a politician, then Conny McCormack has just the job for you.
