VOTER REGISTRATION POLICY

Table of Contents

 

Each individual who comes into a Department of Human Services (DHS) office will be afforded the opportunity to register to vote or to decline that opportunity.

 

Program Goal

 

The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (42 USCA 1973gg-5) requires that all state offices which provide public assistance with federal funds shall make available “mail-in” voter registration forms, assistance in the completion of registration applications, and the acceptance of completed registration application forms. The intent of this federal law is to establish procedures which will increase the number of eligible citizens who register to vote in elections for Federal offices, to protect the integrity of the electoral process, and to ensure that accurate and current voter registration rolls are maintained.

 

NVRA Quarterly Staff Training

 

Certificate Program supervisors and contract managers/directors will ensure all Certificate Program staff who are involved in providing, assisting with, and collecting the registration applications will receive documented quarterly training through their local DHS Family Assistance office.
