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.

New voting process to make its mark in some Bay Area counties in June

Sometime next week, every voter in San Mateo and Napa counties will get a June primary ballot in the mail, whether they asked for it or not. And don’t even think about going to your local polling place on election day. It won’t be there. The two Bay Area counties are among five in the state taking the first steps to implement the Voters Choice Act, a law passed in 2016 that will dramatically change the way Californians cast ballots. Almost every other county is expected to join them in 2020.
