Recordnet.com: UOP puts its stamp on ’08 election

A trio of Pacific Political Scientists, as well as several other Pacific faculty members are working on a research, training, and voter-education project to help reduce voting errors and “spoiled ballots in San Joaquin County.  On result of the project is to encourage people to vote early by mail and to register as “permanent absentee” voters.

“We want people to think about their voting,” said Bob Benedetti, director of University of the Pacific’s Jacoby Center for Public Service and Civic Leadership. This is especially important in California, where voters are often called upon to vote on complex ballot initiatives. “It’s sort of like taking an open book exam.”

In addition to Bob Benedetti, Pacific Political Scientists Dari Sylvester and Nathan Monroe are contributing to the project, which is being undertaken in partnership with the San Joaquin County elections department.
