The Center for DMV Election Resources (CDER) provides technical assistance to motor vehicle agencies who are working on integrating voter registration into DL/ID transactions, methods to reduce transaction times & streamline voter registration workflows, and other election-related projects. The National Voter Registration Act, also known as “Motor Voter,” requires states to offer voter registration at their motor vehicle agencies. When a state modernizes its voter registration process, changes must be implemented by election offices and by motor vehicle administrators.
As more states pass Automatic Voter Registration (AVR) laws, motor vehicle agency administrators are looking at models from other states which they can use for their work. CDER consults with motor vehicle agencies to provide guidance on how different states have approached design, testing, and implementation of different AVR models. CDER can provide you with access to user design, IT, and election administration experts who will help provide methods to streamline operations at your branch offices while ensuring compliance with the NVRA.
