CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill No. 1018


Introduced by Senator Allen

February 07, 2018


An act to amend Section 4006 of the Elections Code, relating to elections.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1018, as introduced, Allen. Mail ballot elections.
Existing law, the California Voter’s Choice Act, authorizes 14 specified counties on or after January 1, 2018, and any county except for the County of Los Angeles on or after January 1, 2020, to conduct any election as an all-mailed ballot election if certain conditions are satisfied. On or after January 1, 2020, the act authorizes the County of Los Angeles to conduct any election as a vote center election if certain conditions are satisfied. For an all-mailed ballot election conducted under these provisions, existing law requires the county elections official to make a reasonable effort to inform a voter if the voter’s vote by mail ballot envelope is missing a signature or how the voter can correct the missing signature.
This bill would extend this notification requirement regarding missing signatures to the county elections official in the County of Los Angeles in conducting a vote center election in that county.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 4006 of the Elections Code is amended to read:

4006.
 For any election conducted pursuant to Section 4005, 4005 or 4007, the county elections official shall make a reasonable effort to inform a voter of either of the following:
(a) If the voter’s vote by mail ballot envelope is missing a signature.
(b) How the voter can correct the missing signature.
