After the threat of litigation the ACLU, Demos, and Project Vote reached an historic settlement agreement with the Secretary of State and Covered California that requires Covered California to provide voter registration to every health benefits applicant. California is the first state in the nation to maximize this historic opportunity to register historically disenfranchised individuals across the state.
Millions of Californians will be applying for, or renewing their health benefits with Covered California this fall. Each consumer will be offered the chance to register to vote whether they apply in-person with an enrollment counselor or insurance agent, or by phone, internet, or mail. The ACLU of California and the Western Center on Law hosted a webinar learn more about the second open enrollment period at Covered California and this historic opportunity to register Californians to vote.
