No Internet Voting for Humboldt County

California Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-19th) has introduced a bill that would, well, it’s short so you can read for yourself what it would do:


 It is the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that would require the Secretary of State to implement a pilot program whereby a county may enable voters to vote via the Internet.

Etopia News contacted Carolyn Crnich, Humboldt County’s Registrar of Voters, today to get her take on this bill.

“No, I wouldn’t want it in my county….I’m a firm believer in paper ballots in Humboldt County.”

Further comment is hoped for shortly from other Registrars of Voters and the California Secretary of State.
