Election Related Bills Pass Assembly

 
Election Related Bills Pass Assembly
Posted Friday, May 24th 2013 @ 7am  by KFBK News


Immigrants who are not U.S. citizens could serve as poll workers in California under one of several election-related bills that have passed the state Assembly. As many as five non-citizens could volunteer in a precinct under the billAB817. Those poll workers must be legal permanent U.S. residents.

The Assembly passed the bill on a vote of 48-22, sending it to the Senate. Lawmakers also approved AB1038, which would prohibit paying someone to register voters for a particular political party. A third bill, AB141, sets a minimum number of votes for a primary write-in candidate to qualify for the general election.
