As we close in on two months until the November election, county voter registration offices across California are scrambling to make sure polling places in their counties will be staffed on Election Day.

Here in Los Angeles County, registrar-recorder Dean Logan is calling for more than 22,000 people to volunteer on Election Day. What is the need statewide for volunteers? How is the Secretary of State’s office helping county registrars to get the word out?

Monday on AirTalk, Larry will speak with California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to find out what the statewide need for volunteers is, what his office is doing to help local registrars get the word out, and we’ll also get an update on SB 450, a bill that would drastically change the way you vote.
