Alex Padilla

Alex Padilla

California Secretary of State

Why Alex Padilla is a voting rights champion:

    • During his time as California’s secretary of state, Alex Padilla has made voting more accessible with the passage of Voter’s Choice Act.
  • “Secretary Padilla has been a powerful voice for voter protection in California and across the country, and we’re excited to endorse him for a second term in office. When President Trump’s sham voting commission requested personal data from voters in all fifty states, Secretary Padilla was the first chief election officer in the country to stand up for voters and deny the request. He continued to be an integral voice demanding that President Trump drop the assault on voting rights and instead expand access to the ballot. Secretary Padilla has led the charge on important reforms in California that will expand the franchise and strengthen voting rights. He’s a model champion for voter protection and Let America Vote is proud to endorse him.” — Jason Kander on Let America Vote’s endorsement of Alex Padilla for re-election as California’s secretary of state.
