AB 1461:

The New Motor Voter Act - Voter Registration

Author: Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez

AB 1461, the New Motor Voter Act, will automatically register to vote eligible voters who obtain or update a driver’s license or state ID. More than 6.5 million Californians—mostly young people—are currently eligible to vote, but not registered. AB 1461 will bring more Californians into the democratic process and will empower more voters to hold elected officials accountable.
