California Double Bubble

Sign the petition.

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.

A few days before the primary,
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. 

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 our 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.

  1. I’m a decline to state and I agree that it’s a redundant bubble; however, it’s not too difficult to spot. I had no problem seeing and punching in that extra bubble. I know others might have difficulty but it’s like the very first bubble-punch option at the very top. If you can’t see it then you must have not punched the rest of the ballot correctly, in which case, the whole thing needs to be adjusted.
