“Ex-voting Official Eyes Safeguards for Election; Neal Kelly Starts National Effort to Ensure Workers are Shielded from Threats”

OC Register:

With less than two months to the midterms and election signs and mailers already abundant, Orange County’s former registrar has launched a national campaign to ensure the safety of election workers and voters in an increasingly volatile and partisan environment.

The Committee for Safe and Secure Elections —chaired by Neal Kelley, who retired in March, and supported by the New York-based Brennan Center for Justice — includes experts in law enforcement and election administration from around the country. Its short-term goal is to connect law enforcement and election officials to address threats and violence against election workers and voters. Over the long haul, the group will look to recommend policies and legislation to address the problem more broadly.
