    California Ready For Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA)

    Do you think this will help prevent voter fraud?

    Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA)

    This year marks the first election cycle during which the full complement of Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA) requirements will be in place. Passed by the United States Congress and signed into law by President Bush on October 29, 2002, HAVA embodies the most sweeping election reform law since the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and, in many ways, the most basic changes to election law ever enacted. Pursuant to its provisions, every state must examine the way it promotes democracy and implements fundamental changes to the electoral process.

    Some of the changes under the new HAVA requirements will affect the way we register to vote, the way we cast ballots and the way we exercise our power as citizens.

    California, as a national leader in election reform, is now well positioned to take on these new responsibilities. The requirements of HAVA are complex and change is never easy. This is especially true in a state with the geographic and demographic diversity of California, and nearly 16 million registered voters – twice as many registered voters as the next largest state. But California is now well on its way to putting in place the promise of HAVA.

    The most visible changes to the election process for voters include:

    New Voting Equipment

    New voting equipment is being purchased and deployed to meet new voting system standards. These voting system changes are intended to improve the process and enable almost every voter to vote independently and confidentially. Voters should now be able to review their ballot to verify their choices and to look for “errors

    OK...BUT UM.....HOW DOES THIS PROVE THEY ARE A CITIZEN? IT ONLY PROVES WHO THEY SAY THEY ARE. AS FAR AS USING A UTILITY BILL TO VOTE HE HE...THIS IS STUPID. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU MOVED INTO A NEW APARTMENT AND THE UTILITY BILL FROM THE LAST PERSON SHOWS UP IN YOUR MAIL BOX? OMG. THIS IS NOT PROOF OF IDENTITY. AS THE MATTER OF FACT ANYONE WITH A HALF DECENT PRINTER COULD MANUFACTURE A UTILITY BILL. NOT TO MENTION THAT THESE KINDS OF DOCUMENTS ARE FOR SALE ON THE STREET. WHAT A JOKE.

    Californian Illegals have been voting for decades thats precisely why we have people like Villarigosa,Fabian Nunez,Baca,Perata, the Sanchez sisters and the list goes on. Sounds like they're making it even easier for Mexican nationals to vote.

    Here's a letter rec'd from the Secretary of State last month:

    Secretary of State
    1500 11th Street, 6th Floor
    Sacramento, CA 95814

    Dear Ms…..

    Thank you for contacting me with your concern about voter fraud and non-citizen voting. As the state’s chief election official, I take any threat to the integrity of elections in California seriously, and I certainly appreciate hearing from you.

    To answer your question about fraud case statistics, my investigation unit reported that 143 election fraud cases were opened in 2006. There were a total of 10 convictions with sentences ranging from probation to time in prison.

    Non-citizen voting makes up only a small port of the election fraud cases investigated by my office. As you may be aware, the identification requirements enacted as part of the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) in 2006 have made it more difficult for non citizens to attempt to register to vote. Under HAVA, people who register to vite must now provide a California Driver’s License or California Identification Card number or patial social security number on their voter registration form. These identifiers are matched against California Department of Motor Vehicles and Social Security Adminstration databases for authenticity to ensure that each applicant is eligible to register.

    Thank you for taking the time to contact me. I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any questions, or if I can assist you on another matter related to the Secretary of State’s office, please contact my office at (916) 653-7244.

    Sincerely,

    Debra Bowen
