Dean C. Logan is the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk for Los Angeles County. Logan has been in the position since 2008.

Voter turnout is low, especially among citizens under 25. Dean Logan, the county's registrar of voters, has a big vision for transforming voting behavior in Los Angeles County.

The June primary election set a record for low voter turnout - especially among people under 25. Less than 3 percent of them cast ballots in Los Angeles County.

Turnout for next month's general election might not be much higher.

But KPCC political reporter Sharon McNary says one county bureaucrat with a big vision is working to change that.
