We were right again-COVID was just an excuse for California to pass vote by mail.
California has officially passed vote by mail.
Californiaâ€™s new law will require ballots to be mailed to all voters for statewide elections.
It's now official. California is a universal vote by mail state.
Voters in all statewide elections will receive a ballot in the mail. Those who still want to vote in person can do so.
While other states roll back access to voting — we're EXPANDING IT. https://t.co/zGXkPPobBa

Californiaâ€™s pandemic-inspired move toward mailing a ballot to every registered, active voter will become a permanent part of the stateâ€™s political landscape, an embrace of an extended and flexible voting process instead of the traditional focus on a single day of voting in person.
Gov. Gavin Newsomâ€™s signature Monday on Assembly Bill 37 makes California the eighth state in the nation with a law on the books requiring every voter to be mailed a ballot. The new law is part of an evolution of voting in the state over the last two decades, an effort to provide voters more options for when and where to cast their ballots.
â€œData shows that sending everyone a ballot in the mail provides voters access. And when voters get ballots in the mail, they vote,â€ Assemblyman Marc Berman (D-Palo Alto), the billâ€™s author, said during a Senate committee hearing in July.
Californiaâ€™s new law will require ballots to be mailed to all voters for statewide elections in June and November. AB 37 also applies to local elections, potentially improving turnout in community contests but also increasing costs, given that vote-by-mail ballots are provided with prepaid postage.
Now, obviously, California is a Deep Blue State so in terms of the presidential race this won’t change the outcome of the state.
However, this doesn’t mean this won’t have massive national implications.
The GOP currently controls 11 of the 53 California seats in the US House of Representatives.
All of these seats will now be subject to being stolen through mass mail-in balloting.
