LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1343, Fong. Vote by mail: procedures: permanent vote by mail voters: failure to return ballot.
Existing law provides for a voter to become qualified as a permanent vote by mail voter. Under existing law, a permanent vote by mail voter will be deleted from the list of qualified permanent vote by mail voters if the voter fails to return an executed vote by mail ballot in 2 consecutive statewide general elections.
This bill would, instead, require that a permanent vote by mail voter be removed from the list of qualified permanent vote by mail voters if the voter fails to return an executed vote by mail ballot in 4 consecutive statewide general elections.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 3206 of the Elections Code is amended to read:

3206.
 A voter whose name appears on the permanent vote by mail voter list shall remain on the list and shall be mailed a vote by mail ballot for each election conducted within his or her precinct in which he or she is eligible to vote. If the voter fails to return an executed vote by mail ballot in four consecutive statewide general elections in accordance with Section 3017 the voter’s name shall be deleted from the list.
