Publication of EAC Decision Regarding State Requests To Include Additional Proof-of-Citizenship Instructions on the National Mail Voter Registration Form
Document Number: 2014-02691
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-02-07
Agency: Election Assistance Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) hereby causes to be published in the Federal Register this notice in reference to the Memorandum Of Decision Concerning State Requests To Include Additional Proof-Of-Citizenship Instructions On The National Mail Voter Registration Form (Docket No. Eac 2013 0004). The decision, issued January 17, 2014, is posted on the EAC Web site at www.eac.gov (shortened link: http://1.usa.gov/1mdWASw), and also on the Federal eRulemaking portal, www.regulations.gov, at the following link: http:// www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=EAC-2013-0004-0429. Arizona, Georgia, and Kansas had sought to modify the state-specific instructions on the National Mail Voter Registration Form (``Federal Form'') to require that, as a precondition to registering to vote in Federal elections in those states, applicants must provide additional proof of their United States citizenship beyond that currently required by the Federal Form. For the reasons set forth in the decision, the Commission denied the states' requests.
