VRM in the States: Pre-Registration in States

May 27, 2014

States with pre-registration laws enable young people to register as future voters, even if they won’t turn 18 before Election Day.  Voters are then automatically registered once they turn 18. Allowing future voters to pre-register before they turn 18 — for example, when they first get a driver’s license — is an important policy to ensure that every voter is registered and able to vote as soon as she is eligible.
