LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 742, Saldana. Elections: felony conviction statements.
Under existing law, the county elections official is required to cancel the voter registration of a person who is presently imprisoned or on parole for conviction of a felony. The clerk of the superior court of each county, on the basis of the records of the court, is required to furnish to the chief elections official of the county a statement showing the names, addresses, and dates of birth of all persons who have been convicted of a felony since the clerk’s last report. The elections official is then required to cancel the affidavits of registration of those persons who are currently imprisoned or on parole for the conviction of a felony.
This bill would specify that the court clerk’s statement must include only those convicted felons who have been sentenced to prison.
