Governor's Veto Message
To the Members of the California State Senate:

I am returning Senate Bill 205 without my signature.

I understand the author's desire to stop fraudulent voter registration. But I don't believe this bill - which makes it a crime to pay people for registering voters based on the number of registrations they secure - will help.

Voting is at the heart of our democracy. Efforts to register voters should be encouraged, not criminalized.


Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
