Apologies for the lack of articles on OneVoter.org recently!
We’ve been working on a couple projects recently and haven’t had as much time to dig into the archives.
- I was keeping an eye on the 2015 End of Session and looking at what bills needed to be added to legislator biographies. There were definitely a couple.
On September 9th, I attended an event hosted by California Secretary of State Alex Padilla that featured a reading of a portion of the State Constitution and a very rare display of the original 1849 California State Constitution.
- In addition to working on small updates and fixes in the JoinCalifornia.com database and beginning to research biographies that will be added after the 2016 Primary, I’ve been working on improving a secondary database that’s used to track the service of state legislators.
- Using the secondary database I mentioned above, I’m putting the final touches on a soon-to-be-released document about the California Legislature that should answer some common questions.
The booklet is currently called “California Legislative Facts & Statistics” but I’m hoping to have a better title worked out by the time it goes live on October 1st.
