 IV. Legislative Updates

California: Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has signed Senate Bill 511 into law. The bill requires the secretary of state’s office to make “reasonable efforts” to promote voter registration and voting in underrepresented communities.

Kansas: Members of both chambers will hold a pre-session hearing on a proposal to implement ranked choice voting in Kansas. According to the Kansas City Star, if lawmakers like what they hear at the hearing, they could fast-track the bill when the session begins in January.

Wisconsin: A bill sponsored by Rep. Melissa Sargent (D-Madison) and Eric Genrich (D-Green Bay) would spend $304,100 to pay for five additional full-tie staff positions for the state’s elections commission.
