     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.


     About Bob Weber:


Bob Weber is one of the Karl Hess Club's most devoted members, having had a perfect attendance most years since 1994 -- and is also one of our most frequent speakers.

Bob is a veteran of the freedom movement. In 1964, he cajoled his parents into taking him to Dodger Stadium for Barry Goldwater's campaign speech.

He registered to vote as a Libertarian in 1972 and cast a write-in vote for John Hospers.

He has run for political office many times, with a perfect record of never having been elected. He served as L.A. County Chair of the LP, was twice the state LP's Southern Vice-Chair, and has served as a member of the state LP's Judicial Committee.

He graduated from UCLA with a degree in chemistry, and spent his professional career in motion picture post production. He is a polymath, knowing many things about many things.

Bob is a recipient of the Samuel Edward Konkin III Memorial Chauntecleer, the KHC's award for Excellence in Agorism.
