A surge in young voters, enabled by the start of online voter registration, helped Democrats win supermajorities in both houses of the state Legislature in November.
Now Democratic lawmakers have brought in a raft of new bills aimed at getting more young people to the polls in the future.
Two bills have been introduced that would require some polling places to be located on campuses of the California State University, University of California and California Community Colleges systems.
"SB 240 will help encourage our young people to vote and provide them the same access to our democracy as voters who live outside of campus,'' said Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco), who wrote one of the bills. Sen. Fran Pavley (D-Agoura Hills) introduced the other bill.
