(San Rafael) – Today is the last day that former Registrar Elaine Ginnold is seen at Civic Center. The Elections Department has hired Lynda Roberts, who held a similar position in Mono County, as the new Registrar.
Marin is a county with one of the highest voter participation in California. Under Ginnold’s leadership, the Election Department strengthened community outreach not only among the usual voters but also to non-English speaking voters in the Latino, Vietnamese, and Chinese communities. The outreach also includes providing information to African-American voters in the area.
Roberts says that she plans to continue building and maintaining relationships. “People can contact me directly. I do want to keep that interaction because I think it is important, with the registrar being a link to the community.”
Good luck to Elaine Ginnold, and welcome Lynda Roberts!
