Posted October 8, 2009 at 7:13pm

California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman scored a victory Thursday when two California newspapers confirmed the former eBay CEO was indeed registered to vote in the state at certain points in the past 20 years. The reports, based on previously undisclosed records, cleared up, to a certain degree, the running debate over Whitman’s history of voter participation.

A Sacramento Bee article published Thursday morning said Whitman “registered as a Republican voter in San Francisco in 1982 and also signed up to vote in Santa Clara County in 1999.”

The San Jose Mercury News echoed those findings in [an article] ( entitled, “Meg Whitman’s voting record not as bad as originally portrayed.”
