Assemblymember Waldron announces signature of Voter Integrity Protection Act

ESCONDIDO – Assemblymember Marie Waldron is pleased to announce that the Governor has signed AB 4, the Voter Integrity Protection Act, into law. The bill will allow counties to notify voters via text or email if their voter registration information has changed.

The Voter Integrity Protection act passed through both houses with unanimous bipartisan support and was sponsored by Riverside District Attorney Mike Hestrin.

“I congratulate Assemblymember Waldron for her focus on protecting voters’ rights. This new law is a step in the right direction to strengthen democracy in our state, and I look forward to building on our mutual efforts to craft sensible legislation that protects the rights of all Californians,” said Hestrin.

The law will go into effect Jan. 1, 2018.

Assemblymember Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center, and Vista.

    No [beep]! And it is also time, therefore, to take the entire voting process into the 21st century by allowing folks to vote using their smartphone . . . which is no big deal today!

    “But, but, but Lee! What about the Russians hacking into our phones and the elections?! They can hack them!!!”

    Exactly! Fear, fear and more fear. THAT is what Uncle Sam is all about. To this day we don’t have a shred of evidence that the Russians or anybody hacked into or meddled with our 2016 elections — even tough we DID so with their 1996 elections — all of which amounts to nothing more than scaring you and I from a truly democratic process! If you and I can order a pizza, make flight plans, order movie tickets, pay our taxes, make purchases and who-knows-what-else we can do with our smartphones — which are more powerful than ALL the computers combined that sent the first person to the moon (think about that, please) — then surely we can VOTE ON ANYTHING . . . while eating our breakfast!!!!!

    We can. But Uncle Sam doesn’t want us to. Thus, the Russian hacking bull[beep].

    Are you starting to see the light?

    Wake up! Uncle Sam does NOT want us to participate in our democracy nor does he want democracy to exist at all!!!

    Still don’t believe me? No problem.

    Lee, you are just what you purport to warn about: an uninformed purveyor of irrational fear. And who are you describing as Uncle Sam? Sounds vaguely like Vlad’s friend the Tubby Orange Tweeter.

    Lee.. Climb out from under your rock. What has happened to our country is no less than an attack against our democracy. Wow…. news cycle after news cycle/article after article/senate hearing after hearing and you still think russia story is “fake news”?? Maybe if you read REAL news articles instead of listening to breitbart or Hannity …you’d learn something . I agree with joe…register, bring ID and Vote. I love casting my ballot. We should never take it for granted.

      @ Jim, oldtimerr and cindi

      Can you show us the evidence? And by evidence I mean REAL, HARD, PHYSICAL evidence of Russia’s hacking and interference of our 2016 elections. I am not asking for what “he said/she said” bull[beep]; talk is cheap, and actions speak louder than words. All we hear is officials of our agencies TELLING us that they believe that Russia had something to do with the elections, but they haven’t offered the actual proof, the smoking gun. So, I want you to present us with REAL evidence, with the smoking gun.

      What you three “Einsteins” don’t understand is that we, the American people, aren’t stupid. You are.
