Visibility in HTML form drop-down not working in IE8 or Chrome

I hope this is in the right place. If not, rather than delete, let me know, so I can put it in the right place. The locations described in the instructions are not clear to me.

I use an HTML form with option/select. I use Jquery to hide/show items within the dropdown. If user selects item "X" in dropdown 1, then items "Y" and "z" in dropdown 2 are hidden so they cannot be seen or chosen.

This works in Firefox (mostly). It does not work in IE8 or Chrome.

Here is a link to test the behavior:

Using the link, if you select House of Representatives, California is supposed to be hidden because it has an Assembly and not a House.

In Firefox, it is hidden. In IE8 and Chrome, it is not.

In Firefox, however, if you press "C" in the state dropdown, California will actually appear, even though it will not allow you to select it. Pressing "C" should have brought Colorado as the return, as California should not have responded, since it was hidden.

Like I said, I hope this report is being made in the right place. I'd hate to find out it wasn't and have to re-type it elsewhere, simply because it was deleted.

Please advise in better detail about the various locations at which to make reports.

This would be better debugged on the forum, since it isn't a clear enough test case to show that there is a bug.
