Bringing Elections into the 21st Century
Voter Registration Modernization
In December 2008, the Pew Center on the States hosted “Voting in America,” a Washington, D.C., summit that initiated a discussion among state and local election officials, policy makers, technology experts and election scholars about the critical need for voter registration modernization.
As public dialogue on the issue increases in the media and in Congress, Pew continues to gather data, analyze research and work with election officials to expose the underperformance of the current system and propose fact-based, practical solutions to guide the modernization process. This August 2009 brief explained some of results from that research.
