LA Porn Condom Measure Fails to Draw Voter Interest

When Los Angeles County voters go to the polls on election day, the ballot will include a question they've never seen before: Should pornographic movie performers be required to wear condoms during filming?

From now until Nov. 6, analysts say, supporters and opponents of Measure B could have a tricky time convincing them to even consider the point.

"Not only is it an issue that's not particularly important to voters, but it's way down the ballot," said Darry Sragow, a longtime political strategist and attorney unaffiliated with either side of the campaign. "Most voters may say, 'This is not an issue I care that strongly about, or this is an issue I don't know much about,' and they may take a pass."
