SACRAMENTO - Three legislative committees that address election policy will conduct a joint hearing in Los Angeles Friday, March 7, to review problems faced by California voters during the Feb. 5, 2008 Presidential Primary election.

Friday's hearing also will be the topic of a press conference Thursday, March 6, beginning at 10:30 a.m. in Room 1190 of the State Capitol. Thursday's Sacramento press conference will review the planned agenda and the legislative goals for Friday's hearing.
