Following up LWV Riverside's spring discussion "Voting Matters".......
Attacking California's Poor Voter Registration Record
We have pledged to work toward making voter registration in California a simple, automated process, with safeguards for those who are ineligible or do not wish to register. While "automatic" registration" like Oregon's new law is of great interest now, there's a lot to be done before such a law can be inacted.
We recently sent a notice letter to our Secretary of State Alex Padilla, urging him to work with the DMV to comply fully with the federal Motor Voter law that requires voter registration to be offered when people apply for or renew a driver license or ID card.
Water: The Stuff of Life – and of Politics in California
The LWVC Water Committee continues to monitor and recommend action on water issues in our state.
Read their update on such diverse topics as the implementation of the Proposition 1 water bond, groundwater plans, the Bay Delta Conservation Plan, and proposed federal legislation.
Based on our positions,
we periodically review bills before the California State Legislature and make recommendations. Visit our Bill Status Report for legislation on which the LWVC has taken a position and recommends action.
Care about voting rights? Make sure you are signed up in our new Advocacy Center to receive action alerts on the issues you care about.
