SB 504: Voter Registration Equity

The Elections and Constitutional Amendments Committee voted 5-0 on Senator Josh Becker’s SB 504 to ensure Californians who were involved with the criminal justice system and have paid their debt to society are not inadvertently removed from voter rolls. The bill also ensures that members of the military and other Californians overseas have equal access to registration and voting as other Californians. The bill now goes to the Senate Public Safety Committee for further review. Watch Senator Becker's bill presentation.
