Dean Logan is the Clerk/Recorder & Registrar of Voters in Los Angeles County and is a member of the EAC Board of Advisors. Los Angeles County is the largest voting jurisdiction in the country, with over 5.6 million registered voters. In addition to its large voting population, the county provides multi-lingual services in 18 languages. To meet the needs of its diverse electorate, the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters utilizes a new modernized voting system, that was developed by the county.

For more than 10 years, Orange County has also been a pioneer in voter list maintenance activities, using a credible third-party data provider to identify voters who have moved. Credit bureaus maintain consumer marketing demographic data, which often have more recent addresses for voters, than addresses on file within an elections database. The county can then use this information to outreach to voters, realizing cost savings and delivering a more accurate voter registration list.
