Governor's Veto Message














To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 1326 without my signature.

This bill seeks to assist voters who have attempted to register, but, through no fault of their own, were not registered because a third party failed to return their registration forms in a timely manner.

This bill is unnecessary. Under current law, if the elections official refuses to register any qualified elector in the county, the elector may proceed by action in the superior court to compel his or her registration. This provision covers all voters, regardless of whether or not they registered through a third party.

For these reasons I am unable to sign this bill.

Sincerely,



Arnold Schwarzenegger
