Applicability of voter registration requirement
The voter registration requirement was included in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993. In essence, if a participating school is located in a state that requires voter registration prior to election day
and/or does not allow the ability to register at the time of voting, then the school must make a good faith effort to distribute voter registration forms to its students.
