 scheduled as the guest speaker for the 310th meeting of the Karl Hess Club, to convene on February 17, 2020.


     Stephen Frank on "Presidential Primary Election Preview"


Mr. Frank will discuss the recent changes to California presidential primary elections. For one, this primary is on the earliest date ever -- March 3rd, rather than sometime in June -- so there is little time to study the ballot issues and candidates before voting begins.

How we cast our votes is also changing. Voting begins eleven days before Election Day. Large voting centers are replacing local precinct polls. Many voters will cast their ballots by mail. And "ballot harvesting" is becoming more of a factor.

How many votes will be controlled by special interest groups, such as public employee unions? How can voters obtain useful information about candidates and issues?

Our speaker hopes to answer these questions.
