Voting and Elections

National Voter Registration Act

Why do we have the NVRA?

  • The NVRA increases the opportunities for eligible voters to register to vote in federal elections. States are required to offer voter registration opportunities by mail, at MVD offices, at public assistance agencies and at other designated offices.

What duties does the Secretary of State have under the NVRA?

  • The Secretary of State is the chief elections official responsible for coordination of the state’s responsibilities under the NVRA. The Secretary of State is also in charge of making the registration forms available through governmental and private entities.
