CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 939


Introduced by Assembly Member Low

February 16, 2017


An act to amend Section 14202 of the Elections Code, relating to elections.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 939, as introduced, Low. Elections: precincts: postings.
Existing law, before opening the polls, requires the precinct board to post at least two copies of the index to the affidavits of voter registration for that precinct in separate, convenient places at or near the polling place. Existing law allows the copies of the index to be by street address in numerical order.
This bill instead would require the copies of the index to be by street address in numerical order. By imposing additional duties on elections officials, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 14202 of the Elections Code is amended to read:

14202.
 Before opening the polls, the precinct board shall post in separate, convenient places at or near the polling place, and of easy access to the voters, not less than two of the copies of the index to the affidavits of registration for that precinct. The copies of the index may shall be by street address in numerical order.

SEC. 2.

 If the Commission on State Mandates determines that this act contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement to local agencies and school districts for those costs shall be made pursuant to Part 7 (commencing with Section 17500) of Division 4 of Title 2 of the Government Code.
