CVF is supporting three bills on Gov. Newsom's desk awaiting his potential signature: SB 523/McGuire will require counties to contact voters with missing vote-by-mail envelope signatures & let them submit a signature so their ballots are counted; SB 72/Umberg ensures Californians can register or change their party at polling places on Election Day; and AB 681/Gonzalez requires county registrars to notify voters of their party registration and presidential voting options before the March 2020 primary.
