Automatic Voter Registration State Update

Thanks to Richard Winger of Ballot Access News for this post.

New Jersey is the Newest State to have Automatic Voter Registration (AVR), which is a system in which Every Adult Citizen known by the Government to Exist is Automatically Registered, unless the Individual Declines.

The New Jersey Bills, AB2014/S1228, was Signed on April 17th.

The other States are: Alaska, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington (will not use AVR for ordinary driver’s licensees because they do not verify U..S. Citizenship), and West Virginia; also the District of Columbia has it.

Petition Validity is significantly higher in States with Automatic Voter Registration.
