September 12, 2014

altProject Vote is committed to ensuring that public assistance agencies are providing their clients with voter registration services, as required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). Today, we are pleased to release a new tool to help them do just that.

Section 7 of the NVRA: A Toolkit for Public Agencies is a clear, concise guide to the legal requirements and proven best practices of providing mandatory voter registration services under the NVRA. It lays out the NVRA’s requirements in four easy-to-understand steps, and provides general guidance and advice on how public agencies can easily, effectively, and efficiently implement these procedures.

The toolkit also provides guidance for chief election officials on how they can train, facilitate, and monitor agencies to ensure compliance with the NVRA, helping to build a truly representative electorate and avoiding costly legal battles that can result from non-compliance.
