Beverly Hills and Farsi ballots

The Los Angeles Times has an interesting story this morning about a controversy in Beverly Hills over the translation of their entire absentee and sample ballots into Farsi. I’ve not seen the Beverly Hills ballot in question, but have seen my local Pasadena absentee ballot, which is in both English and Spanish; it’s a bit complex, and after our local elections are over, I’ll write a bit more about these local ballots and their complexity.
