Signed into law by Gov Brown on 3-7-22
Status (overview) of bill:https://olis.oregonlegislature.gov/liz/2022R1/Measures/Overview/HB4133
Requires electronic voter registration system to allow qualified individual to register to vote with last four digits of an individual’s Social Security number. Requires system to enable individual to electronically submit image of signature. Authorizes Secretary of State to have system include application allowing approved third-party organizations to submit registration cards electronically on behalf of individuals.
Personal Choice and Responsibility
By allowing third-party organizations to submit registration cards electronically on behalf of individuals, they are removing the personal choice and responsibility of those persons to control their voter registration. Mistakes will happen due to this third-party process.
Money should not be used to develop or conduct this process as it removes the rights of the individual to self determine their election rights and responsibilities. Voting is a fundamental right that should be handled best by the voter. Potential Fraud is real. https://blog.cyble.com/2021/03/10/16-million-social-security-numbers-disclosed-in-a-cybercrime-forum/
The voter, not the government should be in control of their own voter registration record.
State issued Drivers Licenses and ID cards at least insure that the person is registered as an Oregonian and presented themself in person at a DMV. Social Security numbers do not provide any evidence of Oregon residency. This further weakens Oregon voter rolls for accuracy.
