39 of the 58 CA Counties have now complied with the law and have submitted their Election Observer Plans (EOPs) to the Secretary of State. They vary in length and comprehensiveness from one page to 15 or more pages.
Go to http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/eop.htm and see if your county has complied. If they have, be sure to read it in considerable detail to understand the rights of observers. Ask questions of your ROV if you are unsure of some aspects. And call your ROV if he/she has not yet complied with the law. It is required of every county and has to be submitted before EACH election this year, including June and November.
Many, many thanks to Evan Goldberg whom I have been working with on this project for several months. This is the first time, and the first administration, to provide this level of transparency across the state. Here we can see another element of transparency in government, the theme of the Bowen administration, being implemented. This is a very, very good thing.
Thank you Evan, thank you Debra!

The degree of willingness of a government to open itself up to public scrutiny and public audit foretells the quality and integrity of that government.
