Brad Friedman‘s “double bubble troublereport, filed late last night, says that (1) California independent voters “who thought they were registering as non-partisan independents [later learned] they’d in fact registered instead as members of the American Independent party, and thus, were not allowed to vote in [yesterday’s] open Democratic primary,” and that (2) “those independent non-partisan voters who did successfully manage to get registered as ‘Decline to State’ (or DTS, or Non-Partisan), were allowed to vote in the Democratic Presidential Primary if they requested to do so when voting. However, without filling in a certain bubble on the ballot, specifying they wanted it to be counted in the Dem Primary, their vote for President, according to LA County’s Registrar of Voters, will not be counted.”
