Bates: DMV Voter Registration Regulations Could Be Changed Under New Bill

Honest elections in California?  As honest as a Russian election.  DMV registers illegal aliens, changes Party affiliations without asking or telling.  Ballots are not sent to voters—and L.A. county send duplicate ballots to the same person.  The Secretary of State refuses to do an audit of the voting roles.  He has been ordered by a Federal Court to cut 3 million people from the voting rolls—and refuses to do that.

“Under Senate Bill 1295, authored by Senator Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel), Californians would receive a prompt at an automated DMV kiosk saying “I’m already registered. Please do not edit or change my current registration.” with an option to click in the affirmative. If chosen, the DMV would not be able to give any voting information of that person to the California Secretary of State.

Current automated DMV kiosks allow people to update their current information to register to vote and to renew their voter registration. They also receive a prompt that says “I do not want to register to vote or update my voter registration information.”, that when clicked in the affirmative, removes them as a voter, forcing them to re-register if they made a mistake or misread the prompt.”

Wonder why we have a socialist government in California?  This is how they get elected, via corruption of the electoral process.

DMV Voter Registration Regulations Could Be Changed Under New Bill

SB 1295 would alter a critical voting registration question at the DMV

By Evan Symon, California Globe,  3/10/20 

A new bill that was recently moved into two Senate committees would give Californians visiting the DMV the choice not to change or update their information for voting records.

A new DMV kiosk prompt

Under Senate Bill 1295, authored by Senator Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel), Californians would receive a prompt at an automated DMV kiosk saying “I’m already registered. Please do not edit or change my current registration.” with an option to click in the affirmative. If chosen, the DMV would not be able to give any voting information of that person to the California Secretary of State.

Current automated DMV kiosks allow people to update their current information to register to vote and to renew their voter registration. They also receive a prompt that says “I do not want to register to vote or update my voter registration information.”, that when clicked in the affirmative, removes them as a voter, forcing them to re-register if they made a mistake or misread the prompt.

According to Senator Bates, SB 1295 fixes that.

“DMV customers deserve clear information about voter registration,” explained Senator Bates in a statement. “My bill would simply eliminate any confusion regarding whether or not someone wants to update their existing information. It would be a small but vital step towards improving the integrity of California’s elections process.”

Senator Bates and supporters such as voting right groups have been highly motivated to change the DMV voting process not only because of many people being accidentally taking off voting rolls, but also because of the January failure of Senate Bill 57. That bill, also written by Senator Bates, would have stopped the opt-out process and ended the practice of automatically enrolling people to vote if they hadn’t registered yet, effectively ending the then four year old AB 1461 law that had started the process in the first place. Despite supporters explaining that the

Opt-in/opt-out

Opponents have said that an opt-out option is critical to getting as many voters as possible to register. Many have said that SB 1295 specifically isn’t so much about clarification as it is about voting areas.

“If you don’t update your information immediately, like at the DMV, then you may be in the wrong city or district in elections,” explained voting consultant Colt Nielson. “I agree with the Senator that we shouldn’t throw people off a voting list for a confused mis-click, but we shouldn’t allow people to stay in an area for voting if they moved, will have  moved by the time they vote, or relocate. The number is low, but if you take a look at how many elections are within a few percentage points, a bunch of people doing that could possibly alter elections.”

“The big concern is losing voters, but having information not be changed is also very big.”

If SB 1295 is passed and signed by the Governor this year, the prompt would be changed at all DMV locations starting in 2021.

    The entire Voter Motor Voter law needs to be repeal. Since implemented, all it has done is create more confusion, errors/mistakes for Californian’s. Waiting lines were bad before this law and the Federal ID cared, doubling or tripling wait hours. They did not need to add voter registration, that only opened the doors for illegals to not only get a license, but registering to vote.

    As one who manages an Republican election headquarters, the complaints, voters party affiliation changes, and DMV registered voter registration forms, never reaching county election offices, has grown and grown. Number of provisional ballots also have grown.

    For efficiency, they might consider adding the crooked SOS and crooked AG along to the Newsom recall petitions. They both have both been placing their own agenda (thru lawsuits) ahead of the peoples business, so if Grabby Gruesome is ousted, they will just continue to sabotage any replacement.

    OK so we all know for Years there is: voter Fraud, changing votes at the Polls, Harvesting/Stealing votes from the elderly…which is legal in California why??????? Loosing the votes on the way to be counted , not allowing the “citizens” into the counting room and votes take weeks to count when the decisions in the rest of the County has been made. So many have volunteers over the years to “Poll” watch, go to watch the count (s) and the Cities and STATE have and continue to ignore the numerous warning to clean up the voter rolls, dead people as well as illegals and double voting. SO What Has Been Done? and What MUST be done before November? Once Again its time for ACTION…..Im willing to do what I can to assist and change the continuous Voter Fraud….Need some direction and leadership………….
