State of the vote in California
The National Commission on Voting Rights is hosting hearings across the country to learn more about the current
landscape of elections. Over the past few years, numerous states have enacted restrictive voting laws, while many
others continue to grapple with recurring election administration and electoral reform challenges. The Commission
will document what keeps voters from the ballot box and election reform efforts that expand access.
We want to hear from you
Are you a California voter who has had any of these experiences in the past few years?
» Is your community growing? Is there little to no diversity
of representation on your local city council, school board,
water or utility district board?
» Had to wait a long time to vote?
» Asked for a photo or voter ID to receive a ballot?
» Requested but did not receive a timely vote-by-mail
» Registered to vote but your name wasn’t in the poll book?
» In need of language assistance but none was available?
» Intimidated, harassed, or prevented from voting by poll
staff or other individuals at the polls?
» Forced to tell your voting selections to a third party in order
to vote because either the accessible voting machine was
not working or the poll worker did not know how to use it?
» Is your polling place inaccessible to people with disabilities?
» Had any other trouble exercising your right to vote?
If so, we want to hear about YOUR experience! You can speak at the upcoming hearing or submit written testimony
in advance. For more information, please contact Erandi Zamora at or Joanna
