The only thing confusing about the voter registration process is the fact that there is no requirement to verify identity or citizenship.
It invites fraud; I think we would be horrified to learn how many non-citizens vote.
It is a democratic facade.

It must be April fools early. One of the forms read,"If you do not have a California driver's license or ID card, list the last 4 numbers of your Social Security Number, if you have one..." _ _ _ _
Please.....that must be the answer.

I worked hard to become a citizen and now anyone can vote and live here. This is unfair.
