“California isn’t doing enough to verify citizenship while registering voters, lawsuit says”

SacBee:

A Republican attorney filed a lawsuit on Tuesday demanding that two California agencies develop a better system to verify the citizenship of people who register to vote through the Department of Motor Vehicles.


In the lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court in Sacramento, Harmeet Dhillon alleges Secretary of State Alex Padilla is violating federal law by not verifying citizenship information from the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles.


She wants the DMV to send Padilla more records related to citizenship to demonstrate that only eligible people are able to register.
