LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 4, Waldron. Voter notification.
Existing law requires a county elections official, upon receipt of a properly executed affidavit of registration or address correction notice or letter, to send a voter a voter notification stating that he or she is registered to vote and providing additional information. If a person under 18 years of age submits an affidavit of registration, the county elections official is required to send that person a voter preregistration notification stating that he or she is preregistered to vote and providing additional information.
This bill would authorize a county elections official to first send the recipient of a voter notification or voter preregistration notification a text message or email indicating that his or her information has been received and that a subsequent notification will follow.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 2155.4 is added to the Elections Code, to read:

2155.4.
