The voters have spoken. The watchdogs are watching. Legislators have been duly warned that they flout the law at their peril.

The Voting Modernization Bond Act of 2018, seeks $450 million to improve California’s voting systems. The funding would update aging equipment and modernize how the state conducts elections to improve the voting experience.

Op-Ed

Voting is a fundamental right, enshrined in the Constitution and buttressed by historic state and federal laws after civil rights battles that continue today. Anyone concerned about voting rights must be heartened by recent court decisions overturning restrictive, discriminatory voting laws in other states. But we shouldn't ignore a threat to voting rights here at home -- a threat that is remedied by a bill currently in the legislature.
