Secretary of State Alex Padilla will announce support for landmark legislation aimed at modernizing California elections. Secretary Padilla will be joined by key legislators to discuss their efforts to increase voter turnout.
Padilla has made improving California’s voter turnout a top priority. California ranked 43rd in voter turnout nationally in the November 4, 2014 General Election. Last month, Secretary Padilla traveled to Colorado to observe their innovative election reforms that have resulted in increased voter turnout. On Wednesday, he will announce support for reforms based on the Colorado election model.
