California lawmakers consider major voting overhaul

Hosted by

The State Assembly votes on a measure Tuesday that would overhaul the voting process, and that could mean the days of scrambling to get to a random garage, school, or storefront on election day may be ending in California. If the proposal passes, many traditional polling places would go away starting in 2018. Instead, every voter would get a mail-in ballot. Voters will still be able to vote in person, but there will be fewer polling places that will be open for several days and voters can choose go to any polling place in their county.
