SAN LUIS OBISPO, CALIF- The California Primary is just 5 days away! Some local college students who thought they were registered to vote in this election may not be.
900, that's about how many Cal Poly and Cuesta students registrations have been turned in past the May 21st deadline. Tommy Guong, Assistant County Clerk says, "we saw registrations that had dates may 21st and earlier and by law those registration forms are to be turned into us within three business days, and in fact they were turned in later."
Four days later! Which is in direct violation of the election law, that's why the county clerk has called for a state investigation of possible fraud. Right now Julie Rodewald, the county clerk is trying to track down the signature gatherers.
Guong, "there were a few names that we saw on the registration cards so those are the folks that Julie has been attempting to contact and get more information."
But the most important thing for these students is that there is a way to still vote. If you are one of the 9-hundred students and still want to vote you can come down to the county clerks office fill out paperwork, it will then go to court for petitioning, for voter eligibility. The next step is Guong says, "we will give them a ballot to vote, and we will hold that ballot until a judge will determine if they are eligible or not."
Now this may seem like a lot of work, but the county clerks office will handle the paperwork with the courts, until the issue is taken care of.
