Like many government services, voter registration has been streamlined in recent years. Advances in technology have made registering voters faster, simpler, more convenient, and less expensive – all while helping to include more eligible citizens and improve the accuracy of voter records.
Voter registration modernizations like updated Motor Voter programs, electronic transfer of voter registration data from the Department of Motor Vehicles, and automatic voter registration (AVR) are examples of some of the popular new ways of registering voters.
But as these voter registration policies are passed at the state level, local election officials need to understand how their work will change as a result. Equipped with best practices from the field, local offices can be better prepared to adapt to new registration processes.
Are you curious about how an updated voter registration process might impact the work of local election officials? The Center for Technology and Civic Life and the Center for Civic Design invite you to attend a free webinar that will provide you with background on different kinds of voter registration modernizations as well as insights and lessons learned from across the country.
