Editorial: Padilla deserves another term as Secretary of State

He has arguably been California’s best secretary of state since Jerry Brown held the office from 1971-74. When Padilla took office, 17 million of the 24.3 million eligible Californians were registered to vote. That number is expected to grow to close to 20 million by the November election, thanks largely to legislation Padilla sponsored that automatically registers voters when they renew their driver’s licenses. Padilla has championed Californians’ right to vote and offered substantial improvements in the state’s election system. He deserves re-election.

Editorial: Chronicle Recommends: Alex Padilla for Secretary of State

As California political offices go, secretary of state is unglamorous enough that Alex Padilla was suspected of seeking it mainly to bide his time until he could run for something more prominent. Four years later, when Padilla is not explaining how he plans to prevent a foreign attack on the next election, the president of the United States is falsely accusing him of allowing 3 million illegal votes in the last one.
