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.
The explosive growth of Super PACs is a major outgrowth of the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United, and it is undermining the integrity and effectiveness of our nation’s anti-corruption campaign finance laws.
