How many different languages is the California ballot. available commonly?
Edited on Tue Jun-06-06 09:59 PM by seriousstan
I ask because I have started following a Cali election thread and the link stated this......



It is a typical California primary, you know, meaning it is complicated. And there are 1,646 polling places, 7,000 poll workers and there is always going to be something, Haas said.

Haas said the county had assigned a troubleshooter to every six polling stations so that problems could be dealt with promptly. With all the political parties and languages, the county had to print 44 versions of the primary ballot.
