POLITICO California Playbook: Automatic Voter Registration

From POLITICO

By Carla Marinucci

AUTOMATIC VOTER REGISTRATION -- Brown also signed the California New Motor Voter Act, which “automatically registers to vote all eligible California residents who get or renew a driver’s license unless they opt out.”

Reaction from Jeremy Bird: a leading architect of Barack Obama’s 2008 field strategy and co-founder of iVote, a leading voting rights group: “By signing automatic voter registration into California law and adding nearly 7 million eligible citizens to the voter rolls Governor Jerry Brown has completed the most successful voter registration drive in American history. … This is a sea of change in California electoral politics. It's not now only easier to vote in California, but elections in the Golden State are fairer, more modern and more representative than they ever have.’’
