Voter Registration on the Road

Just because you decide to live full-time on the road, doesn’t mean you lose your right to vote.  This is one of our greatest civic duties and the U.S Election Assistance Commission (EAC) makes it easy for us.

The National Mail Voter Registration Form is the one document that allows you to register to vote from anywhere in the United States.

Where To Find the Latest Version In 2004 responsibility for developing the National Mail Voter Registration form was transferred to the newly formed Election Assistance Commission. Visit the EAC.GOV Web site for the latest version of the National Mail Voter Registration Form.

The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) was established by the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA). EAC is an independent, bipartisan commission charged with developing guidance to meet HAVA requirements, adopting voluntary voting system guidelines, and serving as a national clearinghouse of information on election administration. EAC also accredits testing laboratories and certifies voting systems, as well as audits the use of HAVA funds.

Other responsibilities include maintaining the national mail voter registration form developed in accordance with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993(opens in new tab).

HAVA established the Standards Board and the Board of Advisors to advise EAC. The law also established the Technical Guidelines Development Committee to assist EAC in the development of voluntary voting system guidelines.

The four EAC commissioners are appointed by the president and confirmed by the U.S. Senate. EAC is required to submit an annual report to Congress as well as testify periodically about HAVA progress and related issues. The commission also holds public meetings and hearings to inform the public about its progress and activities.
