California Governor Signs Bill to Let Voters Register on Election Day

Published on September 24, 2012, by in General.

On September 24, California Governor Jerry Brown signed AB 1436, to let voters register at the polls on election day. The bill won’t take effect until either 2014 or 2015. Voters would need to visit a county elections office on election day to register; they could not do so at the neighborhood polls.

California becomes the first large-population state to permit same-day voter registration. Governor Brown also signed many other election law bills on September 24. Here is a list. He has not acted yet on AB 145, which makes it illegal for registration-drive organizations to pay workers on a per-registration card basis. Thanks to Rick Hasen for the news about AB 1436.
