National Voter Registration Act (NVRA): National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) – Overview

What Is It?

The National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) implemented in 1995, requires public agencies which provide assistance or services to persons with disabilities to also provide voter registration opportunities. All DHS programs are required to comply.

Why Is It Important?

Not only is it important for our clients to register to vote but if DHS fails to offer the opportunity to register, it could result in substantial penalties for the agency. State Election Board (SEB) representatives may even visit local county offices to ensure the agency is in compliance with National Voter Registration policies and procedures.
