Lorain County (OH) adopts DOJ "recommendations" for Spanish ballots

"Also, the elections board will hire an additional temporary elections worker who is bilingual and add an option to its phone system that will direct callers to a Spanish-speaking employee.  Absentee ballots will now include instructions in Spanish, although the ballots mailed out to voters will remain entirely in English. Finally, Adams said, each polling place in the county will be given a log book so poll workers can log issues dealing with Spanish-speaking voters. Adams said the log book was suggested by the elections board, which wants to more directly pinpoint where the Spanish-speaking voters are. To determine where there are a large percentage of Spanish-speaking voters, the Justice Department examined the voting rolls for people with Hispanic surnames."
