SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Some California election workers could keep their home addresses hidden from public records under a bill in the Legislature.
The bill is in response to an increasing number of threats against election workers following the 2020 presidential election.
It's one of a number of proposals states are considering to protect election workers.
A survey of election workers from across the country found 1 in 6 has experienced threats because of their job.
The bill cleared a legislative committee in the California Assembly on Monday.
California also lets domestic violence victims and abortion providers hide their addresses.
