Subject: AB 1038 Voter registration – OPPOSE

Dear Assembly Member Pan,

(The following is in response to Legislative Counsel’s Digest:)

1. Existing law already specifies conditions regarding payments to or considerations for voter registration assistants.

2. This bill would prohibit a person, company, or other organization from paying voter registration assistants. Attempts at prohibition historically do not function, and break down over time naturally.

3. Penalizing assistants by making their time and work a misdemeanor only rewards the prison building industry.

4. This bill would impose a state mandate with no provision for reimbursement for costs.

I urge the Legislature to reject this ill-conceived and mis-directed legislation.
