Supervisor Hilda L. Solis issued the following statement following voter roster irregularities in Tuesday’s primary elections:
Since Election Day, my staff and I have been working diligently to try to figure out what went wrong. I am very upset and disturbed that such a grave error occurred. Please rest assured I am doing everything in my power to ensure that the County of Los Angeles gets answers and rectifies the problem so that it does not happen again and that ALL VOTES ARE COUNTED. The Board of Supervisors questioned Dean Logan, our current Registrar Recorder-County Clerk, at the Board Meeting yesterday.
I will make sure to update my constituency when I receive these answers. Please also know that the Board of Supervisors asked for an independent review from our Chief Executive Officer to look into what happened on Tuesday’s election. I am taking this very seriously and I am trying to be as transparent as possible with the information I’m receiving. Please email me at FirstDistrict@bos.lacounty.gov if you would like to stay updated.
