NATIONAL VOTER REGISTRATION ACT

NATIONAL VOTER REGISTRATION ACT

Also known as the "Motor Voter Act," makes it easier for all Americans to exercise their fundamental right to vote in order to increase historically low registration rates of minorities and persons with disabilities. The Act requires all offices of State-funded programs that are primarily engaged in providing services to persons with disabilities to provide all program applicants with voter registration forms, to assist them in completing the forms, and to transmit completed forms to the appropriate State official.
