Calif. Ranks Near Bottom in Election Management, Study Says

From rejected ballots to problems with voting machines, a new study shows California needs a lot of work when it comes to running elections.

The report from the Pew Charitable Trusts looks at how states handled the 2008 and 2010 election cycles. By Pew's metrics, California was one of the worst performers in those elections, down at the bottom of the list with New York and a handful of Southern states.

Host Stephanie Martin talks with David Becker, director of Pew's Election Initiatives Project.
