The absentee ballot application issue seems to be all about how Glendale conducts elections to city positions (“Application ordinance passes,” Wednesday). The draft ordinance said that applications must be sent directly to the Glendale City Clerk’s Office and not to the business addresses of those conducting campaigns for city positions. Proponents of the ordinance clearly did not trust the candidate campaign offices to process the voter ballot applications without reference to voter ethnicities.

In the state's 48th Congressional District, the political process is no longer controlled by those who show up. Mailing in is now where it's at. State Sen. John Campbell nearly swept Tuesday's special election to become the district's congressman on the strength of absentee votes, and his general election opponents will have to target those voters to have a shot at beating him Dec. 6.

You don't even have to be alive to vote On Tuesday, I went to vote in Glendale. When I got to the polling place, there were about a half-dozen voters ahead of me in line. Each took out their driver's license and showed it to the poll-watchers, who checked their names on two lists. When I got to the head of the line, I did not recognize or know the poll-watcher. I had never seen him before and he had never seen me before. He probably did not know me from Adam. I did not show my driver's license, for I knew that the California election laws are written so as to not discourage illegal aliens and dead people from voting.

CITY HALL — The City Council this week broached ditching so-called “emergency ballots” for last minute voters in favor of beefing up absentee vote-by-mail allowances, but stopped short of making any changes for the April 5 election. Glendale voters can request a vote-by-mail ballot up to seven days before the election, but after that deadline they can fill out an application for a so-called “emergency” vote-by-mail ballot up to Election Day. California election law allows for the late ballots for people who are disabled or who cannot make it to their precinct because of “unforeseen circumstances” — a vague term that city officials said essentially makes the application impossible to deny.

All six candidates joined the Crescenta Valley Town Council Saturday, with about 1.4% of the voting population casting a ballot. Voter turnout tends to be low for the advisory board to Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich, with greater participation occurring when a controversial issue arises or more candidates run for the 12-member body, council members and candidates said. “I wish we had more people running. I wish we had 10 or 14 candidates. I think that in itself would bring out a lot more people,” said Robbyn Battles, an incumbent who won reelection Saturday.

Ever since Councilman Zareh Sinanyan admitted to making racist comments , there has been a chorus of individuals at the ready to remind us of his transgression. The latest, Grey James, in calling Sinanyan a “confessed racist,” has implored the City Council to propagate an anti-hate proclamation . His comments need some Glendale history for context. James says that Glendale supports hate speech and he's right, though perhaps not in the way that he thought. Armenophobia - fear or dislike of, or racism against Armenians - has been part of the lives of Armenians in this city for decades.

CITY HALL — The city’s election season came to an end Friday after officials counted more than 2,000 provisional and absentee ballots, showing no significant changes from the April 7 results. The race for city treasurer was the only election that could have been affected by the previously uncounted ballots, election officials said, with incumbent Ron Borucki’s lead over challenger Rafi Manoukian at only 823 votes before the final tabulations. Borucki’s lead was cut almost in half, to 446 votes when the final tally was announced, but Manoukian, a former mayor, ultimately fell short of unseating the incumbent.

GLENDALE ? The City Council?s recent change to the process by which completed absentee ballot applications for municipal elections are returned to the city does not automatically affect the Glendale Unified School District board of education, Glendale City Atty. Scott Howard told the school board on Tuesday. But under the new ordinance, the city may compel the school district to comply with the new rule if board and council elections are combined, he said. The ordinance, which the City Council approved on Feb. 19, prohibits candidates in municipal elections, and any third-party group, from collecting the completed applications, requiring instead that they go directly to the city clerk.

GLENDALE — An ordinance preventing third parties from handling completed absentee ballot applications that passed on a contentious 3-2 City Council vote Tuesday could face renewed opposition after long-standing — and potentially new — opponents of the law consider their next moves. At the forefront of any possible coalition opposing the new ordinance would be the Armenian National Committee Glendale chapter, which during the two months leading up to Tuesday’s City Council vote had channeled opposition into a letter-writing campaign that called the measure discriminatory.
