To make it easier for the public to identify late documents and those responsible for them, a weekly updated listing of late fliers with unpaid fines is now on the Secretary of State's website at outstanding-fines/outstanding- fines-info.htm. "When disclosure statements are filed late or, in some cases, not at all, voters don't have access to important information they're entitled to see," said Secretary Bowen, the state's chief elections officer. "Shining a light on late fliers may add some powerful motivation for everyone to comply with the law." Since her first day on the job, Bowen has sought to make the Secretary of State's office more transparent by providing public access to a wide range of records and, information for business entities, Uniform Commercial Code, elections, campaign finance, lobbying activity and the State Archives. One of Bowen's first acts was to commission a groundbreaking top-to-bottom review of voting technology and election auditing standards, during which she provided unprecedented access to details such as draft documents, testing experts' curricula vitae and testing security protocols, and provided opportunities for public input when none were required. (For more top-to-bottom review details, visit http://cal-access.sos. Following is a roundup of key resources on the Secretary of State's website.

This is one of a series of vignettes about daily life on a US military base Kiki wrote while she was in Baquba, Iraq. This is part two of an ongoing series, presented in diary form. September 06, 2006 - I love the Gov. Our Governor, Ra'ad Jewad Mulla aI-Timimi is a dapper man. Slight, not very tall, neat brush mustache, fine features...he's always dressed in a conservative suit, usually brown. The first time we met he looked at me over lunch and said, "1 have two wives." I looked back at him and said, "My father-in-law had three." Muslim One-upsmanship. If I had been entirely honest, I would have said that my first (Muslim from India) husband's father had one wife who passed away then he married again twice, so he really only had two at once, but I didn't want to split hairs. The Gov and I meet about once a week. Our current preoccupation is the Provincial Council and how they are managing not to spend the $100 million they have in Iraqi Reconstruction and Development Fund money. Another is the peace process. And there is always something, whether it's getting back the building that belongs to the Women's Center but is occupied by the Ministry of Telecommunications or the intimidation of doctors in Mukhdadiya. Our Governor occupies a difficult position. He was chosen by the Provincial Council and the Chairman threatens to remove him on a regular basis. Of course, the Provincial Council tries to remove the Chairman on a regular basis (he has a habit of writing letters in their name that they haven't approved) and no one succeeds. No one said democracy was easy. Our Governor also likes to talk. His Arabic often sounds like poetry, probably because I can't understand it. Everything is translated, of course, and we've all become accustomed to speaking in measured sentences and at some length, but Our Gov outdoes all of us in this. And every once in a while he really hits home. This week General Turner, who is leaving shortly, asked our Gov what was the single most striking thing that had happened in the past three years. "Our people.have tasted freedom," said the Governor after a pause, "and they have learned to love it." September 13, 2006 - Baghdad--The fleshpots of Baghdad are a long way from life on our simple FOB. I feel like a country girl come to the Big City. Last night we went to a real restaurant. I wouldn't call it fine dining, but we sat outside in the warm twilight with a cold beer and watched the sun set behind a row of palms. With us was Mike, whom I'd last seen at a conference in Zagreb. We talked of common friends and caught up on gossip. Mike is now with the Baghdad PRT (Provincial Reconstruction Team) and seeing old friends is as important in the Foreign Service as it is anywhere. Before going out to eat, I spent some time shopping. My shopping gene exerts a dominant influence at strategic intervals. Nowadays that's when there is a chance, shopping not being a strength of our FOB (Forward Operating Base) Warhorse. I have tried to bring shopping to our FOB. We have over 1500 Americans living there and market opportunities abound, but somehow it hasn't worked beyond a few CDs, DVDs, jewelery from India and rugs from Turkey. Cheap rugs...that is, cheap in quality rugs from Turkey, a fact which would make my husband thankful if he knew. A pity since, over the years, I have discovered that most of us Americans don't consider a trip a success if we can't buy anything. In Baghdad the merchants are more on the ball. The famed al- Rashid Hotel is full of shops with stuff in them. Stuff from India, stuff from Europe (families selling antiques...sad stuff) and some from Iraq. I bought souvenirs which may have been made in China but looked Iraqi for friends and we had coffee in yet another restaurant. Two restaurants in two days, a true hallmark of civilization. But something was wrong. Walking back, it hit us. On the street in front of the biggest and best hotel in the International Zone there was no one. No car. No person. Absolutely still except for a dove cooing in the distance. No customers in the shops except...Mike from last night. No one besides us in the coffee shop. It may have fleshpots, but Baghdad is not yet a normal city. have organized to support or oppose measures on California's statewide ballot disclose their income and expenditures at Campaign/Measures. Want to know who is trying to influence legislative or administrative actions, and how? Lobbyists, lobbying firms and entities that employ lobbyists file financial disclosure reports with the Secretary of State's Office on a quarterly basis throughout each two-year legislative session.
