City Clerks Workshop at League’s Annual Conference will Focus on Elections

August 17, 2018
The League will offer a specialized City Clerks Workshop on Sept. 12, focusing on the present and future of elections, as an add-on to the Annual Conference & Expo.
 
For years, elections and the electoral process itself have been in a constant state of flux at the local, state and federal levels. For example, the impact of technology on the most recent presidential election is still dominating the headlines. In California, presidential primaries are moving back to spring. At the local level, with the passage of SB 415 (2015), agencies are now required to hold their elections on statewide election dates if previous elections resulted in voter turnout that was 25 percent below average.
 
Dan Schnur, an elections expert, and Dean Logan, Los Angeles County registrar-recorder/county clerk, will provide insight into what is on the horizon on the local, state and federal election fronts and how to keep up with the coverage.
 
The annual City Clerks Workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 12 from 8:30 a.m –
1 p.m., before the main conference activities begin. The workshop will begin with a 30-minute department business meeting followed by a four-hour workshop.
 
Registration is $150 per attendee from a member city and can be completed at the same time as your regular conference registration. Online conference registration closes on Aug. 21.
