California Secretary of State Kevin Shelley says thereÂ´s been a lot of voter confusion caused by an effort to postpone the October gubernatorial recall. And that confusion, he says, is now over.
A unanimous, eleven-member federal appeals court in San Francisco today reinstated the October seventh election, which had been delayed by a three-judge panel of the same court.
Shelley praised todayâ€™s decision, noting that no court has ever delayed an election once voting had begun. Some voters had already mailed their absentee ballots when the three-judge panel ruled, and Shelley says itÂ´s important to complete the process.
