10. Respectfully, I would not take the word of a message board poster, whether or not that poster
claims to be a lawyer.

For one thing, it's very easy to get a "legal degree" on a meessage board. For another thing, even if true, not all lawyers are created equal.

I think the League of Women Voters and Office of the Secretary of State recommendation made upthread was a good one. The California ACLU is another good source.

Then, at least, you would have a source to quote that you know is both reliable and recognized by readers.
