The Secretary of State’s
office, in coordination with the Department of Motor Vehicles and the 58 county
elections officials, made easier the process of voter registration in California.
Now, any eligible California
voter who has access to the Internet and a driver’s license or ID signature on
file with the DMV can register whenever and wherever it is convenient.
The League of Women Voters of California
encourages all people who are eligible to vote to register and to cast an
informed vote in all elections.
We believe in the power of the
vote, and that government should make voter registration and preregistration
easy while assuring that the basic requirements of citizenship, age, and
residency are met.
Voter registration too
frequently presents a barrier to eligible voters. Online voter registration
will increase the number of registered voters and facilitate updates of voter
registration for people who have moved or changed their name or political party
by allowing them to do the process online.
Online registration will help
prevent errors in transcribing handwritten information on registration
affidavits and will speed up recording of late registrations and cut down on
errors. Voters will be better served AND millions of dollars will be saved.
