3. The National Voter Registration Form – by federal law, states must accept the National Voter Registration Application (NVRA) except the following states: North Dakota does not have voter registration, Wyoming by State law cannot accept the National Form, and New Hampshire town and city clerks will accept the National Form only as a request for their own mail-in absentee voter registration form.

Download the NVRA, print it out, and mail it to your state’s Secretary of State or Board of Elections office:
