Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today after Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed a bill making it easier for Californians to participate in elections by allowing for same-day voter registration:
"Once again, California leads the way for our nation: today, as Governor Brown signed the same day voting bill, we affirmed our commitment to ensuring all citizens have the opportunity to exercise their right to vote in our democracy.
"Already, voters in our state can register online thanks to Secretary of State Bowen and Senator Yee. And as this new bill is implemented over the coming years, the process will be made easier and more streamlined.
"In America, we believe every vote counts, and every vote must be counted as cast."
