"The California Voters' Experience" - a new paper

October 30, 2008

Hi Folks,

Just in time for the election, the California Voter Foundation has published a new paper I authored, "The California Voters' Experience -- What Works for Them, What Does Not Work, and Where to Go From Here." It's on the CVF site at:

I've spent the past three months working on this paper, at the request of California Forward, which is working to make structural and governance changes to improve California, and is online at

"The California Voters' Experience" is 40 pages long and takes a close look at the four stages of the voting process from the perspective of the California voter: registration; preparation; voting; and results. It also includes analyses about key barriers to improving voter participation in California, such as the digital divide, and concludes that greater uniformity and consistency in voting practices and procedures would help improve the voting experience for Californians.

I hope you have a chance to read it and let me know what you think.
