HB13-1147Voter Registration At Public Higher Ed Institution MELTON / NEWELL The bill requires a state institution of higher education (institution) to provide its students, when a student registers at the institution for the first time, the opportunity to apply for voter registration as follows:
* For a student who is registering electronically at the institution and who is eligible to register to vote on-line, the institution must give him or her the option of registering electronically using the web site maintained by the secretary of state.
* For any student registering at the institution in person or any student ineligible to register to vote electronically, the institution must provide him or her a voter registration application. After the student completes the application, an authorized employee of the institution must forward the application to the county clerk and recorder for the county in which the student resides. The county clerk and recorder determines whether the application is complete. If so, the applicant is deemed registered. If not, the clerk and recorder must so notify the applicant. The higher education commission and the secretary of state are directed to jointly develop a voter registration application for in-person voter registration applications.
