California opens the door to more voter fraud with new motor voter law

California’s Governor had a busy weekend, breaking out his pen and signing nearly two dozen bills into law. Most of them centered on the voting process in the Golden State, but while liberals are taking a victory lap there are hints that these maneuvers are going to signal trouble down the line. The big ticket item in the legislative package was the “New Motor Voter Law.” This brainstorm will make voter registration automatic for any person receiving a new driver’s license or renewing an existing one.
Targeting California’s recent record-low voter turnout, Gov. Jerry Brown on Saturday signed a measure that would eventually allow Californians to be automatically registered to vote when they go the DMV to obtain or renew a driver’s license.
The measure, which would also allow Californians to opt out of registering, was introduced in response to the dismal 42% turnout in the November 2014 statewide election.
That bill and 13 others the governor signed Saturday, will “help improve elections and expand voter rights and access in California,” Brown’s office said in a statement.
That’s the headline and what’s being discussed in the media, but it actually goes further than that if you read the text of the bill. They’re going to be registering all sorts of folks to vote.
[T]he Department of Motor Vehicles would be required to electronically provide to the Secretary of State the records of each person who is issued an original or renewal of a driver’s license or state identification card or who provides the department with a change of address, as specified. The person’s motor vehicle records would then constitute a completed affidavit of registration and the person would be registered to vote, unless the person affirmatively declined to be registered to vote during a transaction with the department, the department did not represent to the Secretary of State that the person attested that he or she meets all voter eligibility requirements, as specified, or the Secretary of State determines that the person is ineligible to vote.
The two highlighted sections in the text of the bill above show where the door to voter fraud problems is being thrown wide open. First of all, it’s not just drivers who are being registered… it’s anyone with an ID card or any documentation where their address is recorded. It’s also worth noting that this law is being pushed through in the very same year where another law allowing licenses for illegals resulted in more than half of new drivers licenses issued in 2015 going to “undocumented immigrants”
