Voter Registration and Voter List Updates: A Primer

Download the primer:

This single-page resource covers the basics of voter registration and voter list updates. It offers quick descriptions of who is eligible to vote, how election officials know who’s eligible and how election officials update voter lists all while going easy on “election speak” or election terminology, which can be confusing.

There are two versions available. One is a ready-to-use PDF with general information. The other is a PowerPoint template that your office can edit to fit the policies and practices of your state. Uses for this resource include a printed handout, webpage content or a downloadable resource on your website.

If you need assistance with tailoring this template, reach out to our Communications Resource Desk.
