Tell the LA County Registrar to count all “DTS” votes

Sign the petition to Dean Logan and fix the “Double Bubble Trouble”

In what the media is now calling “Double Bubble Trouble,” 94,000 “Decline-to-State” votes in Los Angeles County — 50% of the total DTS ballots cast — are being rejected due to a ballot design flaw, despite the Courage Campaign’s discovery of the “double bubble” problem and official notification to the Registrar prior to Election Day.

Last weekend, lawyers for the Courage Campaign uncovered the “double bubble” problem — a shocking requirement that “Decline-to-State” voters fill in a redundant “Democratic” bubble (on a ballot clearly marked “Democratic Party”) as well as a bubble next to their preferred presidential candidate. Our legal team realized that — without the “Democratic” bubble filled in — the county’s optical scanners would void votes for “President of the United States,” regardless of voter intent.

What is LA County, the Broward County of California?

Unfortunately, Dean Logan, the Registrar in charge of Los Angeles County, is refusing to conduct a physical hand-count of every “Decline-to-State” vote before the official vote is certified in just a few weeks.

Every vote must be counted. And time is running out. Please sign The Courage Campaign petition to Registrar Dean Logan today demanding that he conduct a physical hand count of all “Decline-to-State” votes cast in the Democratic primary. The more names we add to this petition, the more likely it is that the Registrar will count every vote.

Never again. Not in California. Not in America. Please sign our petition to Registrar Dean Logan right now.

*NOTE: You do NOT need to live in Los Angeles County to sign this petition. However, if you are a DTS voter in Los Angeles County, please click here to report your “double bubble trouble” at the polls.

    Aren’t paper ballots wonderful.

    I bet those people in LA county wish they had these flawless E-Slates like here in the OC.
