(Besides, what if 18-year-olds think they're registered because of SB 113 but are not on the voter rolls because they moved? "That's part of the support that they would need," Romero answered.)
To recap: It's not enough that California makes it easy for citizens to register. The state needs to preregister 15-year-olds in case they don't register when they're old enough to vote. Then the state needs to remind 18-year-olds to make sure they're registered to vote and to vote, because they're old enough to vote -- but not to remember.
