[ NNSquad ] Online voter registration comes to California

Online voter registration comes to California

http://j.mp/nvLPQg  (Capital Alert)

http://j.mp/rsf0cS  (Text of Legislation)

     "Senate Bill 397, by Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, allows to
      (sic) state to begin registering voters online ahead of the
      completion of a new statewide voter registration database."
      [signed into law by Gov. Brown]

The ramifications of this are not entirely clear, since it allows the
"tapping" of an existing signature based on information that is not
widely protected in the first place (DL#, last 4 digits of SSN, DOB).
