Should Sex Offenders Be Allowed to Work Election Polls?

Two registered sex offenders are suing Los Angeles County for denying them the chance to sign up as election poll workers, claiming the denial violates state law and the constitution.

The lawsuit was filed by the Alliance for Constitutional Sex Offense Laws, a nonprofit that has challenged a number of laws targeting registered sex offenders in California.

The group claims that state law does not prohibit sex offenders from working elections. It points to several other counties, including San Diego, Riverside, and Sacramento, that have no such ban in place.
