As Los Angeles prosecutors investigate potential voter fraud in Bell, several residents have told The Times that city officials pressed them to fill out absentee ballots in a way that election experts say may have violated state law. Four voters said city officials walked door-to-door encouraging them to fill out absentee ballots. In one case, a woman said she signed papers she believed were election paperwork. She never filed an absentee ballot. But when she went to the polls on election day, records showed that she had voted absentee.

Discrimination against Latinos in Southern California elections has shrunk to the point that they no longer require the most aggressive forms of protection under the federal Voting Rights Act, a three-judge federal district court panel ruled Wednesday. The judges dismissed a lawsuit brought by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund challenging parts of the redistricting plan for congressional and state legislative seats adopted by the Legislature after the 2000 census.
