California governor signs automatic voter registration bill

California Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday signed into law a bill that will automatically enroll citizens in the most populous U.S. state on voter rolls when they obtain or renew driver’s licenses, his office said. Lorena Gonzalez, a Democratic assemblywoman who authored the legislation, had said it could increase the state’s voter base by millions of people. The law allows voters to cancel their voter registration at any time, according to Gonzalez’s office.
