STOCKTON — The elections process would be more effective if county residents voted strictly by mail, the San Joaquin County grand jury said in its 2009-10 report. And taxpayers could save up to $1 million by casting their ballots that way.

The research into a mail-only voting system was described in one of 13 reports the outgoing grand jury made public Monday.

Among other things, the jury also analyzed policies and procedures of the county Housing Authority, criticized Child Protective Services for its complaint process, called for the censure of three San Joaquin Delta College trustees, examined Stockton's follow-up on municipal audits and questioned appointments to boards and commissions.

The grand jury also released follow-up details on nine reports from 2008-09 and issued reports on the operations of law and justice facilities.
