Automatic Voter Registration Act
This bill requires state motor vehicle authorities, upon receiving specified identifying information regarding an individual requesting services, to transmit the information to the state election office. The state election office shall then notify the individual that the individual shall be automatically registered to vote in federal elections in the state unless the individual declines to be registered to vote, does not meet voter registration eligibility requirements, or is already registered to vote.
A state may only use such information regarding an individual's citizenship status for determining whether the individual is eligible to vote in federal elections.
