(Sacramento) – State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) observed National Voter Registration Day by calling on Governor Jerry Brown to sign into law the California New Motor Voter Act. The Act, known as Assembly Bill (AB) 1461, would expand voter registration opportunities by registering every eligible citizen who goes to a Department of Motor Vehicles to get a license or renew one, with the ability to opt out, potentially adding millions of new registered voters to California’s voter rolls. “Nothing is more fundamental to a strong democracy than ensuring people have access to voting free from unnecessary barriers,” Gonzalez said. “We’ve seen voter participation plummet in recent years as our voting system has fallen behind the times, but the New Motor Voter Act allows us the opportunity to streamline and modernize the registration process for millions of eligible voters who haven’t been a part of our voting system.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
