True the Vote joined forces with the Election Integrity Project of California (follow EIP-CA on Twitter!) to demand that Gov. Brown allow sanity to intervene and veto AB 1461. Since a decision on the bill must be made by September 28, we need your help. Click here to contact Gov. Brown’s office and demand that he veto AB 1461. Even if you live elsewhere, drop the Governor a line – your voice matters, too. State-sanctioned voter fraud is absolutely unacceptable – especially when the ACLU (the ACLU!) estimates that more than 3 million non-citizens could be registered to vote.
Don’t think it will happen outside of California? Think again. Some states choose not to differentiate between citizens and non-citizens when issuing driver‘s licenses. If Nevada, New Mexico or Vermont were to borrow California’s bill today, they would be protecting non-citizen voters from criminal prosecution as well. Simply put, if we as engaged voters allow this type of policy to break containment from California, we will only have ourselves to blame. Take a stand today.
