California to send all voters mail-in ballots this November

California to send all voters mail-in ballots this November”

Last month, Los Angeles County also announced that it would be sending all 5.4 million registered voters a mail-in ballot for the election.

Gavin Newsom (D) on Friday signed an executive order permitting all registered voters in the Golden State to vote by mail in the upcoming presidential election, citing health concerns stemming from the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.

Newsom said that his order would still allow an "appropriate number" of in-person voting sites, saying that some voters, including those that are disabled, require technological help to cast a ballot.

"Elections and the right to vote are foundational to our democracy", Newsom said in a release. Californians who may need access to in-person voting opportunities - including individuals with disabilities, individuals who speak languages other than English, individuals experiencing homelessness, and others - will still be able to access in-person voting opportunities.

If counties don't have clarity for in-person voting methods and other November election details by May 30, Newsom may issue another order addressing election issues.

Secretary of State jocelyn Benson says around 50 communities are holding elections.

Secretary of State Alex Padilla said California was the first state in the U.S.to be sending all voters vote-by-mail ballots in response to the pandemic. As many other states bought time by pushing back their own primaries, Wisconsin went ahead with in-person voting on its original date in spite of warnings from health experts and concern among voters.

"Today's executive order is a critical first step to ensuring California's November 2020 election is safe and accessible", said Jonathan Mehta Stein, Executive Director of California Common Cause.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Indiana's registered voters can now submit an online application to receive their mail-in absentee ballot, according to State Rep.
