Discussion of absentee ballots

Glendale officials are holding a meeting Wednesday to discuss a possible change to the city’s absentee ballot application process.

The proposed amendment would keep any person, group or committee from handling vote-by-mail ballot applications after they are first distributed. Ballots would have to be returned directly to the City Clerk’s Office. The current process allows any individual or group to distribute and receive completed applications.

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Glendale Police Community Room, 131 N. Isabel St. For more information, call the city clerk at (818) 548-2094.

The Glendale Arts Alliance continues its series of public input meetings Wednesday, this time to discuss how the new organization, together with the Glendale Arts & Culture Commission, can better promote the value of arts to the community.

Moderators will also seek ideas on how artists and arts organizations can work with local educational institutions and teachers to incorporate the arts in school programs and the classroom.

The meeting takes place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Glendale Police Community Room, 131 N. Isabel St.
