Voter Birthplace?

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — The Associated Press reports voting applicants who fail to list their birthplace on the registration form would still be deemed eligible to vote. That’s the intent of a new bill working its way through the Legislature. Democratic Assemblyman Das Williams says no harm would be done under his bill because applicants also must swear under penalty of perjury that they are United States citizens. Republican Assemblyman Tim Donnelly says the box should be removed from the form if it is considered unimportant.
