“After being denied placement on the ballot I met with County Clerk staff. It is apparent from their actions and lack of transparency and accountability that their practices are intended to deny the right of certain candidates to appear on ballots.”
“I have contacted California Secretary of State Alex Padilla’s Office to address the issues that I have uncovered and I have not seen action to remedy the issues at the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office ” said Beatrice Cardenas, Candidate for California’s 27th Congressional District.. “My only course of action is to involve the justice system. Due to the late notice from the County Clerk’s office, only an order from a Judge to put my name on the ballot will cause justice to be served at this time for a fair and impartial election.”
