Rosalyn Lever doesn't particularly care for politics. Sure, she works closely with politicians, and as the county's registrar of voters she is at the center of the maelstrom when elections roll around. But for Lever, politics and elections are about mechanics, deadlines and the building tension of an approaching election. "I like putting on a production," said Lever. "And I get to see the culmination of my work."

Re "Say Yes to Registrar Funds," Sept. 9: I want to thank you for your very positive editorial in last Sunday's paper. I feel The Times has been very supportive of my office during the entire strategic planning process. However, I feel it necessary to point out one inaccuracy: The statement "It is unfortunate that the county still does not have money to train poll workers." This has been a sensitive issue since Supervisor Todd Spitzer was misquoted in your news article of Aug. 23. The concern with mandatory training of poll workers is not the cost, it is the effect that mandatory training will have on recruiting poll workers.

Orange County's top elections official has declined a state request to remove the names of 743 people from the voter rolls, saying she has not seen enough evidence to show they were not citizens when they registered to vote before the 1996 election. "We don't have any proof that they registered improperly," said Registrar Rosalyn Lever. The 743 were among 1,278 people registered to vote before the 1996 election by the Latino rights group Hermandad Mexicana Nacional.

With Florida serving as a lively backdrop, county leaders in Orange County are taking second glances at the recent election and the person who oversaw the local vote count, county Registrar of Voters Rosalyn Lever. And this is what county supervisors see: 40,000 sample ballots shipped late, a Libertarian misidentified as a Republican on the ballot, a precinct without any ballots and allegations of voter-day wrongs in Santa Ana.

Rosalyn Lever will sip her coffee and slip out the door for work well before 7 a.m. today. And that's about the only part of her day that will be routine. She's in for a 24-hour pressure cooker. Lever is the county's registrar of voters. You think election day creates a small disruption in your life, you should see what Lever has ahead of her. One long headache until the last votes are counted, before dawn if she's lucky. I asked Lever how long she's been doing this.

A Latino-rights group wants Orange County Registrar Rosalyn Lever and her deputy fired in the wake of this week's last-minute scramble to process 8,000 uncounted ballots. The election results didn't change in the five cities affected by the missing votes. Amin David, chairman of Los Amigos of Orange County, said the county's elections division has had too many glitches.

COUNTYWIDE More than 140,000 sample ballot pamphlets for the March 5 election were printed incorrectly for the Orange County Board of Supervisors race between incumbent Cynthia P. Coad and challenger Chris Norby, a Fullerton City Council member. Coad's and Norby's names were reversed on the ballot, giving Norby a slight edge because his name appears first. Incumbents should be listed first.
