California lists 'Taiwan' in election registrations

LOS ANGELES--The California state government has changed its voter registration website to allow Taiwan-born voters to list their place of birth as "Taiwan" rather than "Taiwan, Province of China" when registering to vote.

"It is a victory for the Taiwanese-American community in California," California Democratic Representative Howard Berman said Saturday. The change was made less than a week after Berman wrote a letter of protest after many California residents born in Taiwan complained about the state's online voter registration system.

In the letter to California Secretary of State Debra Bowen, Berman asked for the dropdown menu to be corrected to allow Taiwanese-Americans to list their country of birth as "Taiwan."
