Last week, I introduced the Voter Registration Integrity Act along with Rep. Candice Miller of Michigan. This bill directs states to implement a voter registration check and verification when individuals move. Currently, when individuals move out of state and register their new address with their new state's motor vehicle department, they are also asked if they would like to register to vote. The Voter Registration Integrity Act would require state motor vehicle departments to determine whether individuals want their new location to serve as their residence for voting in federal elections, and if so, to notify their former state of residence so they can be removed from the old voter registration rolls. As former secretaries of state in our respective states, Rep. Miller and I can both attest that this would be a valuable tool to help election administrators ensure the integrity and accuracy of voter rolls.
