Californians will someday be able to register to vote on election day under legislation signed into law Monday by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Assemblyman Mike Feuer (D-Los Angeles) wrote the measure to increase voter participation in elections. The current law says voters must register at least 15 days before an election.
“Voting — the sacred right of every citizen — should be simple and convenient,” Brown said in a statement. “While other states try to restrict voters with new laws that burden the process, California allows voters to register online — and even on Election Day.”
