This bill would permit a voter, from the 14th day immediately preceding an election until the close of polls on election day, in lieu of executing a new affidavit of registration, to change the voter’s residence address or political party preference by submitting to the voter’s county elections official a written request containing the new residence address or political party preference and signed under penalty of perjury. The bill would require a ballot or provisional ballot to be provided to the voter, as specified, and would require that the registration of the voter be immediately updated. This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
Staff Note: Bill heavily amended so it no longer relates to asthma preventive services as a covered benefit under the Medi-Cal program.
