Re "O.C. Interim Registrar Readies Special Tactics for Recall Election," Sept. 15: With the tumult caused by balloting procedures in the 2002 presidential election, I would think that the Orange County registrar of voters would have taken extraordinary precautious in administering the Statewide Special Election ballots, especially if he wants his job to be made permanent. Unfortunately, Steve Rodermund decided to leave voters confused. The first instruction for returning completed absentee ballots -- underlined and in boldfaced type to add emphasis -- is erroneous.

With three elections quickly approaching and controversy growing over the scheduling of one of the votes on a Jewish holiday, Registrar of Voters Steve Rodermund was placed on administrative leave this week without explanation. "It's a personnel matter," said County Executive Officer Thomas G. Mauk, who relieved Rodermund of his duties Thursday. Rodermund did not return calls seeking comment. Deputy Registrar Neal Kelley will run the Department of Voters during Rodermund's absence.

Re "O.C. Jews Fault Date of Special Primary," Aug. 18 The vote to replace Rep. Chris Cox, now chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, just got more entangled because of the myopia of Orange County Registrar of Voters Steve Rodermund and the abject disinterest in a key voting block by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who approved the controversial voting date. Perhaps Rodermund needs to be sent to diversity training, as he admits that he knew the date would be on Rosh Hashana but went ahead with the date anyway despite the special primary's arbitrary voting date's coincidence with a significant Jewish religious holiday affecting thousands of citizens in the congressional district.

State law requires candidates for elected office to submit reports identifying campaign contributors. Those documents will now be scanned electronically by the registrar of voters and placed on the county's Web site.
