Existing law requires a county elections official who receives an affidavit of registration from a voter who resides or claims residence in another county to forward the affidavit to the elections official for the county in which the voter resides, and further requires the elections official for the county in which the voter resides to accept the affidavit and use it as the voter’s permanent record of registration. Under existing law, registration by that method is effective for all elections occurring 29 or more days after receipt of the affidavit of registration by the elections official to which the affidavit was mailed or delivered by the voter.end delete
This bill would instead provide that registration by that method is effective for all elections occurring 15 or more days after receipt of the affidavit of registration by the elections official to which the affidavit was mailed or delivered by the voter. By requiring elections officials to process and count additional voters’ ballots to be handled and counted, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.end delete
