Type: Report


This report is the first comprehensive summary of critically important new voter registration procedures effective in most states at the beginning of 2006. This report is intended to serve as a resource for election officials, legislators, citizens, and advocates interested in safeguarding access to the franchise and making effective use of the new statewide databases. We hope that the information in this report will contribute to greater understanding of the policies states are currently contemplating to govern the voter registration process, as well as the best policy options available.
