California expands automatic voter registration to teens
Yet another reason I love California ... and will never leave.
From Think Progress:
"California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed into law Wednesday legislation that will automatically pre-register all 16 and 17 year olds to vote when they receive a California driver’s license or state identification card.
The law is “the largest voter registration expansion that we’re aware of in our nation’s history,” according to Terry Schanz, the chief of staff to state Assemblyman Kevin McCarty (D), who co-authored the bill. According to state lawmakers, this new law is expected to add 200,000 young voters each year."
