Covered California mailing voter-registration cards
San Francisco Chronicle

California, which has one of the nation’s lowest voter-registration rates, is mailing voter signup cards to nearly 4 million enrollees in its new health insurance program after being threatened with a lawsuit by voting rights groups.

Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange, began the mailings last week and agreed to add voter-registration material to its online, telephone and in-person enrollment procedures by this fall, the American Civil Liberties Union said Monday.
