I am a believer in removing barriers to voting. Maryland complies with the Federal Motor Voter Program and encourages drivers to register to vote.
Wouldn't it also be great to encourage people registering guns to also register to vote?
What is "Motor Voter?"
Federal law requires the MVA to provide its customers the opportunity to apply to register to vote, or update voting information, during a driver's license or photo identification (ID) card transaction.
New Process (effective 2-21-12): Prior to your driverís license or identification card transaction you will be given an "Applying to Register to Vote at MVA" flyer at the information counter. This flyer will instruct you on what to expect during the motor voter transaction. MVA customers will then answer the voter application questions through a computerized touch screen and their driverís licenses or identification card signatures will be used to certify the application for voter registration. This information is then transmitted electronically to the State Board of Elections on a nightly basis. This process is paperless.
