Elections are plagued with questions of fairness and efficiency. Many asked during Glendale's City Council election, in which 19 candidates vied for seats, if a primary wasn't in order. In Burbank, where they now have an all mail-in election, some question if democracy is being stifled. The League of Women Voters Glendale/Burbank will ask those and other probing questions in its year-long survey examining how city officials are elected in the two neighboring cities.

DANETTE GOULET There has been a decided lack of campaign signs this year as compared to the last election -- much to my delight. By this time, every street corner is usually pasted with the bright, vile placards telling passersby how to vote. I'm not sure why I am so offended by campaign signs. Perhaps it is because they are a plea for the ignorant vote. Or maybe it's because they are visual pollution in an already polluted world. It could be because remnants remain long after the election.

A number of important issues relating to the future of Huntington Beach were center stage during a candidate forum held a week ago at the Murdy Community Center. Chief among them were the proposed senior center, which dominated the discussion, and the pending lawsuit regarding the city's mobile-home ordinance. The problem with the debate? There were just 50 people there to watch six of the seven candidates discuss the issues. Fortunately, those 50 represented a cross-section of nonprofit organizations in town, and they can report back to their groups about what they heard.
