    Can you CA folks enlighten me on any CA restrictions on using a voice recorder. If I record a conversation with a public official in a public place and I was a party to the conversation, do I have a duty to inform the other party?

    Well, public servants have "no expectation of privacy" while exercising their duties, so they can always be recorded.

    However California law prohibits recording of conversations which are assumed to be private without permission of all recorded parties.

    So, record public servants all day, but try to turn it "off" before you record two people whispering to one another.
