SPA Leadership

In Fall of 2019, I began working with my California State Senator to draft legislation that would amend California State Law to allow voters to complete Vote By Mail (VBM) ballot applications. After discussion with my State Senator, I have connected with the Legislative Affairs Division of the California Secretary of State’s Office to draft a memorandum directing County Elections Officials to use signatures on file with the California Department of Motor Vehicles to process digital VBM ballot applications. This change would allow Californians to request VBM ballots completely online, allowing for efficient, affordable access to voting by mail.

As part of my research process, I prepared this Legislative Research Guide for stakeholders and policymakers.
