ACIN I-04-13: SB 35, And The National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) (2/12/13)

SB 35 codified portions of the NVRA, which places additional requirements on voter registration agencies. The Secretary of State is in the process of revising the California NVRA Manual, specifically Chapter 4, for public assistance to reflect the new requirements, and updating training materials.  This ACIN reviews the complete process that all county welfare departments must do whenever a person applies for services, or renews or recertifies eligiblity, and when the CWD is notified of a client’s change of address.  These instructions also go over the requirements as applied to on-line processes, and language access.  [Download]
