Welcome to The Canvass: States and Election Reform® -- a newsletter by NCSL for legislatures. With support provided by the Pew Charitable Trusts, The Canvass is designed to synthesize data, legislative practices, and insight from the 50 states and U.S. territories into an executive summary for legislators and key staff.
We hope The Canvass will give you an edge in perspective as you work to improve your state's elections, and we welcome your feedback. Feel free to call or e-mail us with any questions or comments.
The November issue ofThe Canvass examines dual registration systems in Arizona, Kansas and Oregon. In Arizona and Kansas, the systems are being developed to accommodate the states' requirement for proof of citizenship for voter registration, while the federal government provides a "must accept" federal registration form that does not require proof of citizenship. in Oregon, a dual system has been in place for years. Under it, citizens who have used that federal form but have not shown required proof of residency are still permitted to vote in state and local races.
Also included: interviews with a committee chairperson and a local election administrator and links to many election-related resources.
A printable version (pdf) is available here.
Featured election articles from past issues of The Canvass can be found in a Topical Index.
