Brown OKs election-day voter registration for future contests
September 24, 2012
Californians will someday be able to register to vote on election day under legislation signed into law Monday by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Assemblyman Mike Feuer (D-Los Angeles) wrote the measure to increase voter participation in elections. The current law says voters must register at least 15 days before an election.
“Voting — the sacred right of every citizen — should be simple and convenient,” Brown said in a statement. “While other states try to restrict voters with new laws that burden the process, California allows voters to register online — and even on Election Day.”
