Mindy Romero, Director of the California Civic Engagement Project (CCEP) recently published an issue brief examining reasons for Vote-by-Mail (VBM) ballot rejection in the state of California and the methods taken at the county level to help voters correct VBM ballot issues. Utilizing detailed voter registration data from California's county election offices, this latest brief breaks down the analysis of the state's rejected by age, language preference and military status for the 2012 General Election. Key findings include the follow:
Youth and non-English voters are more likely to experience VBM ballot rejection. Missing signatures are a major reason non-English ballots are rejected. Military and overseas voters experience a higher likelihood their VBM ballots will go uncounted.
CRC Director Jonathan London, Chris Benner (Human Ecology/Community and Regional Development) and Nancy Erbstein (Human Ecology/Human Development) will be presenting two new data mapping tools, the Regional Opportunity Index and Putting Youth On the Map that help identify and direct investment to disadvantaged communities.
