What Is the National Mail Voter Registration Form?

The National Mail Voter Registration Form allows someone to register to vote from anywhere in the United States. There are four parts of the National Mail Voter Registration Form, including:

  • The Application itself
  • The General Application
  • The Application Instructions
  • The State Instructions

What Are the Uses of the Form?

The form can be used to:

  • Register out-of-town tourist and convention groups
  • Register those from surrounding States who work, shop, or attend events in a central city
  • Conduct voter registration drives (i.e. at colleges)
  • Register people at State agencies or other public offices

Those states that accept the Form will accept copies of the application printed from the computer image on regular paper stock, signed by the applicant, and mailed with first class postage. Some states do not use the National Form:

  • North Dakota - does not have voter registration
  • Wyoming - does not accept the National Form by state law
  • New Hampshire - town and city clerks will accept the Form only as a request for their own mail-in absentee voter registration form

What Should I Do If I Want to Organize a Voter Registration Drive?

Usually, it is at the discretion of the chief State election official how many Voter Registration Forms are distributed to a single organization. Many states will determine the number of Forms distributed based on the size of the target population, the method of distribution, the number of individuals registered by the organization in any previous drive, and other factors. Voter registration forms are paid for by tax dollars, so organizations should only request a realistic number of forms. Also, organizations themselves may mail in Voter Registration Forms.

Do I Need a Lawyer with Experience in Voting Rights Issues?

A lawyer would be able to inform you of how to take advantage of the National Mail Voter Registration Form and how to complete it. A government lawyer would also be able to advise you on registration drives.
