Voter Registration

UNMC must provide the following Voter Registration Information to all UNMC students to remain compliant with Title IV federal student aid assistance programs.

The voter registration requirement was included in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993. In essence, if a participating school is located in a state that requires voter registration prior to election day and/or does not allow the ability to register at the time of voting, then the school must make a good faith effort to distribute voter registration information/registration forms to its students.

The Department of Justice has identified the states that meet this criterion. Nebraska residents are required to register to vote for all state and national elections. The requirements of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (also known as the “NVRA” or “motor voter law”) apply to 44 States and the District of Columbia. Six States (Idaho, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and Wyoming are exempt from the NVRA. Likewise, the territories are not covered by the NVRA (Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, and American Samoa)

The following web sites offer information on Nebraska Voter Registration requirements and Nebraska Voter Registration forms.
