As if getting married weren't expensive enough, the registrar-recorder will raise fees for marriage certificates and other records to help pay for the automation of vital records, officials said. Copies of birth, death and marriage certificates will go up by $1 next month to $16, $11 and $13, respectively. The increase was mandated statewide by AB 430, passed in August.

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."

Only in car-happy California could someone drive by and register to vote in less than 10 minutes. Hundreds of people did just that late Tuesday. Some admitted that they were last-minute types who tend to file their income taxes on the last day. "I haven't re-registered because of procrastination," William Green said with an embarrassed smile. "I probably wouldn't be able to vote if it weren't for this event."

Monday is the last day to register to vote for the March 7 primary election. Who can register: Under California law, people entitled to vote must be U.S. citizens, at least 18 years old at the time of election and California residents for 29 days before the election. If you move within 28 days of the election, you can vote by returning to your former precinct or by obtaining an absentee ballot for that precinct.

Nearly 2% of all voters who requested absentee ballots in this month's local elections failed to receive them due to errors by the Los Angeles County registrar-recorder's office, and candidates who lost tight races may contest the results of their elections. The problem was apparently caused by data clerks hitting the wrong key while generating absentee ballots on the county's new election computer system, erroneously suppressing 1,697 ballots that should have been mailed to voters.

A voter with two last names might confound most precinct officials, but for seasoned poll pros like Frank and Shirley Bruno, it's just a matter of remembering the regulars. It has been years since the woman with two last names first walked into the Brunos' family room-turned-polling place, first giving one half of her hyphenated last name, then the other. The Brunos couldn't find her. Had she come to the wrong location--or failed to register?

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.
