How Will the New Motor Voter Law (AB 1461) Work?
In October, the Governor signed the New Motor Voter law (AB 1461) to reduce barriers to civic participation by automating voter registration at the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Our new FAQs explain the work to implement it and how it is different from the automatic registration law Oregon passed in the spring.
We hope the automated system will be in place by the 2016 elections and will continue to monitor the implementation. Donít forget, you can always register to vote or update your voter registration at registertovote.ca.gov.
