California, where else?, just paved the way for illegal aliens to vote. It’s another episode of the gift that keeps on giving to the Left, Motor Voter.
Gov. Jerry Brown has approved legislation to make California the second state in the nation to begin automatically registering eligible voters when they obtain or renew their driver’s licenses.
AB1461 by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, aims to boost California’s voter rolls by registering visitors to the Department of Motor Vehicles and was among dozens of bills that Brown announced Saturday he had signed.
Oregon actually took the lead on this issue, being “first in the nation.”
The bottom line is that when you get or renew a driver’s license you are automatically registered to vote. The feature in this law, for Democrats, is that California, along with a number of other states, grants driver’s licenses to illegal aliens.
There are two points here. First, the DMV is handing out assurances that no illegal will be registered to vote. “There are safeguards.” And the check is in the mail.
Second, the theoretical point of this bill is to get more people to vote. Automatically registering more people doesn’t mean that more people will vote. If you can’t expend the effort to register, you’re not likely to actually show up to vote.
There are two bad things that can happen from this auto-registration. First, if you decline to state a party preference there may well be a glitch in the system that registers you “Democrat” and sets you up for absentee ballots. Second, Democrat poll watchers get a list of voter registrants who’ve declined to state a party preference and they vote for them.
Couldn’t happen, right? Right.
