Voter Registration Act of 1993

The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA) requires that Behavioral Health provider agencies make voter registration opportunities available to disabled populations at the time that clients are enrolled for services. The NVRA training, presented on this website, is required to be taken by provider staff once each year, and outlines legal requirements and County expectations under this Act. If you have questions about this requirement, please contact your Contracting Officer Representative (COR).
