Walk for Umberg

The Tom Umberg for Supervisor campaign is putting together a fun Saturday for their volunteers. Starting at 9 a.m. precinct walkers will meet at the Central Labor Council in Orange (2020 W. Chapman, Orange, CA. 92868).

The campaign will be giving out t-shirts, and there will be a BBQ.

If you have been thinking about volunteering for the Umberg campaign, but haven’t worked up the gumption, the organizers of Saturday’s event say that it’s an excellent time to start.

    While you’re all out there harvesting absentee ballots, please keep Section 3017 of the California Election Code in mind:

    3017. (a) All absentee ballots cast under this division shall be voted on or before the day of the election. After marking the ballot, the absent voter shall either: (1) return the ballot by mail or in person to the elections official from whom it came or (2) return the ballot in person to any member of a precinct board at any polling place within the jurisdiction. However, an absent voter who, because of illness or other physical disability, is unable to return the ballot, may designate his or her spouse, child, parent, grandparent, grandchild, brother, sister, or a person residing in the same household as the absent voter to return the ballot to the elections official from whom it came or to the precinct board at any polling place within the jurisdiction. The ballot must, however, be received by either the elections official from whom it came or the precinct board before the close of the polls on election day.

    (b) The elections official shall establish procedures to insure the secrecy of any ballot returned to a precinct polling place.

    (c) The provisions of this section are mandatory, not directory, and no ballot shall be counted if it is not delivered in compliance with this section.

    (d) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), no absent voter’s ballot shall be returned by any paid or volunteer worker of any general purpose committee, controlled committee, independent expenditure committee, political party, candidate’s campaign committee, or any other group or organization at whose behest the individual designated to return the ballot is performing a service. However, this subdivision shall not apply to a candidate or a candidate’s spouse. [emphasis added]

    It was merely a stupid choice of words. I’m certain that no laws are being broken.

    I agree that it was a poor choice of words, although one has to wonder if the ED of your County party should have thought twice about that one.

    As far as being certain that no laws are being broken, I would not go as far as saying “certain”. At that point your credibility is at stake.

    Overall, I don’t blame the Reeps for being skeptical.

    I’d really like to be there, but I will be down in Gitmo in a windowless building fighting terrorism. My loyal wife(emphasis on loyal) will bring a life size cardboard cutout of me for you all to adore.
