California Voter's Registrations at Ancestry.com

Ancestry recently released a database of California Voter's Registration lists 1900-1968. This is a good thing.
But, I'm not thrilled with the search box. There is no soundex option, nor can I search for a specific year. Using a keyword will bring up that year and any person who has that "year" as a part of their address. Still too much to wade through for some names. I had several descendants of my third-great-grandmother I was hoping to locate, but the current search interface is weaker than most on the Ancestry.com site.
Complaining here probably won't make a difference, but I feel better.
