Two from SF Chronicle on Controversial Ballot Measures

The newspaper offers this report on the electoral college initiative, which begins: "A GOP-backed initiative to toss out California's winner-take-all system of assigning electoral votes was approved for circulation Wednesday, and Democrats immediately slammed it as a backdoor attempt to hand Republicans the 2008 presidential election."

It also offers this report, which begins: "A pair of Bay Area election officials said Wednesday that mistakes by their offices - not political pressure - forced them to revise the signature count in the barely successful effort to instantly qualify a term limits initiative for the February ballot."
