Since I live in CA and have some familiarity with state laws, Kez called me to see if I had any ideas. I suggested her friend get to the Registrar of Voters and do early voting, but she didn't make it before they closed.
Anyone have any ideas how this can be remedied? Since she is a legal adult, I can't help but wonder if her parents' refusal to let her leave the house constitutes false imprisonment. And aren't there federal laws against deliberately preventing someone from voting?
My next thought is to see if we can find a voter's rights group, a local branch of her political party, or a labor union near her (labor unions often help get voters to polling places) to see if they can be of any help. Other thoughts and suggestions welcome!
