Voting Rights in Prison – ACA 4 (Bryan)

ACA 4 was introduced by Assemblymember Bryan.

This constitutional amendment will allow currently incarcerated people in California prisons to vote. If the constitutional amendment passes the Legislature, it will then be sent to the voters to decide on the November 2024 ballot.

An Update on ACA 4 (Bryan):

We are disappointed to announce that ACA 4 (Bryan) will not be moving forward in the Legislature and won’t appear on the ballot in 2024.

With the increased tough-on-crime approaches, ACA 4 (Bryan) did not have the support to make it through the Legislature.

We know this is a path towards the liberation of voices that have been marginalized for countless years, this is why The Free the Vote Coalition is committed to continuing efforts towards expanding voting rights and voting access to thousands of incarcerated people across California.

Over the course of the next few years, we will assess the best path moving forward to ensure we have a California democracy that is inclusive of all voices.
