Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn called out technical challenges and long lines at vote centers in a motion she’ll file today at the Board of Supervisors meeting.
“Voting in Los Angeles took on a much-needed transformation recently,” the motion reads, noting voters’ new freedom to vote at any center and for multiple days leading up the election.
“However, despite all those improvements, we heard reports of large numbers of voters who were frustrated with their experience on Election Day.”
She noted insufficient staffing at popular vote centers, reports of lines up to four-hours long — leading some voters to give up — and technical problems that “were not addressed quickly.”
Hahn wants the Registrar-Recorder to investigate all of the problems and report back in 45 days on how they’ll be fixed before the really big election in November.
