Protect The Vote


Resolution 12-07.01

WHEREAS, The Repulican Party hides behind false accusations of voter fraud in order to enact voter suppression laws that target and disenfranchise young people, working families, and communities of color, while hypocritally engaging in actual voter fraud right here in California; and

WHEREAS, In 2010, the Democratic Party worked tirelessly to legally register voters creating the movement to win the 52nd Assembly seat for Democrats and elect Dr. Pan to the California State Assembly, turning the national red tide away, while local Democratic Party activists and Labor leaders uncovered numerous cases of Republican voter fraud aimed at switching voters' party identification without their consent;

WHEREAS, In 2012 in Sacramento County, the GOP again paid bounty hunters for each Republican registration card they turned in despite this scheme encouraging more fraudulent voter registration cards to be submitted, forcing local election officials to squander scare resources and adding to the 960 cases for fraudulent voter registration or fraudulently altering party affiliation the Secretary of State's Election Fraud Investigation Unit opened from 1994 to 2010; now, therefore, be it

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT We, The California Democratic Party, actively support Speaker John A. Pérez, Dr. Pan and the Assembly Democrats' efforts to "Protect the Vote", promoting the rights of every Californian to participate in the political process and stop fraudulent registration drives that disenfranchise voters.

Be it further resolved, that the California Democratic Party calls on the California Secretary of State and the Attorney General to investigate and prosecute fraudulent partisan voter registration drives, as evidenced by recent Sacramento County Republican Party efforts.
