Paperless Registration

21st Century Solutions

IMG_0600Paperless voter registration systems provide exciting new opportunities for improving access to voter registration among groups traditionally underrepresented in the electorate.

Specifically, paperless voter registration processes can be developed economically and can seamlessly integrate and transfer existing electronic data collected at voter registration agencies and the DMV to election officials. Such systems will allow states to:

•  Reach underrepresented groups in the electorate;

•  Reduce costs associated with paper applications; and

•  Efficiently and consistently maintain voter rolls.
