The continuing notion that there is voter fraud in Isla Vista lingers. It lingers with the right wing, who really knows not or why. The Republicans simply found a path. Where does that path lead us?
It leads us to nowhere. That path has not been supported by the Superior Court judge, the appellate court judge, the District Attorney’s Office or the California Secretary of State. No voter fraud was exposed. They tried that foolishness while I was the Registrar. It did not work. Our current registrar must make the same claim without fear.
Kenneth A. Pettit served as the Registrar of Voters for Santa Barbara County until his retirement.
