About the Program

Last year, California passed major legislation to increase the state’s voter rolls. If successful, this automated voter registration law could expand political representation and help boost civic engagement. Research fellow Eric McGhee will talk about the new registration system’s expected impact on the demographics and size of the electorate, and outline steps the state can take to ensure the reform achieves its goal.

This research was supported with funding from The James Irvine Foundation.
