National Voter Registration Act
Document Number: 2010-19514
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-08-09
Agency: Election Assistance Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) seeks comments on proposed changes to its regulations pertaining to the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA). Section 9(a) of the NVRA requires the responsible agency to issue regulations for developing a national mail voter registration form and for submitting a biennial report to Congress on the impact of the NVRA. EAC proposes to amend its NVRA regulations to ensure that they are consistent with the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA) and to make some technical amendments. EAC also invites public comments on additional changes to the NVRA regulations to improve voter registration through the content and format of the Federal form and to change the date by which States are required to submit data to EAC for use in the biennial report to Congress on the impact of the NVRA. EAC will not make any changes to the NVRA regulations until after the November 2010 Federal election. EAC anticipates issuing a final rule pertaining to the regulations necessitated by HAVA. EAC may also issue new regulations about the content and format of the Federal form and the biennial report to Congress based on the comments it receives on the topics discussed in Section VI either in the same final rule or in a separate final rule.
