ELECTION DISSECTION, Scalpel, please!

Join us on November 17 at 6 PM via Zoom for an autopsy on the election. Help us figure out “What Happened Here” from a two-week hindsight perspective. We'll take a clínical look at four major topics:

 

• Election process in Mendocino County with Assessor, Clerk, Recorder Katrina Bartolomie

• Update on the Census locally with Mendocino Coast Census Chair Paula Cohen

• Electoral College process with Charlene McAllister

• Proposition 15 aftermath & next steps with Cindy Plank & Ang Dominquez

Viewers will be invited to ask questions and give comments throughout the presentation. League Co-President Nancy Kleiber will moderate.

First, the meeting will focus on the election experience in Mendocino County, with a report from our Elections office.  Assessor-Clerk-Recorder Katrina Bartolomie will provide an overview of what happened at county polling stations, the collection and counting of absentee ballots, the numbers of voters in 2020 compared to previous years, and any discernible trends in the demographics of registered voters.

Next, Paula Cohen will report on the windup of the census, the final response rate in various areas of the county, and how this count in the midst of the pandemic compares with previous ones.   The Census affects legislative redistricting for the congressional, senatorial, assembly, and State Board of Equalization districts.

Charlene McAllister will broaden the focus into a review of how the electoral college is organized, how its electors are actually chosen, and the dates and deadlines it is required to meet. 

Lastly, Cindy Plank & Ang Dominquez will give an update on Proposition 15, the California League’s long-anticipated focus to provide more funding for schools & communities through a reassessment of large commercial property.

Please join the conversation and invite your friends and neighbors to do so as well.
