SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California's online voter registration system was in use for the first time last year and proved so popular that lawmakers want to build on its success this year.
Wider promotion of the system and a push toward online voting are among several election-related bills under consideration as the Legislature approaches a midyear bill deadline.
About 800,000 Californians used the online registration system.
The author of the original bill, Democratic state Sen. Leland Yee of San Francisco, now wants all state websites to link to the secretary of state's voter registration page to publicize the system.
Meanwhile, Democratic Assemblyman Phil Ting of San Francisco has proposed AB19 to review the security of online voting software and eventually create a pilot program.
