Voter Proof Of Citizenship Requirement

Concerning requirements to provide proof of citizenship to vote.
2021 Regular Session
Elections & Redistricting
Bill Summary

The bill provides that only an elector who has provided proof of citizenship can vote in an election. Registered electors who have presented a county clerk and recorder with proof of citizenship receive regular mail ballots. All other registered electors receive provisional mail ballots. Electors who receive provisional mail ballots must present those ballots at the county clerk and recorder's office and must provide proof of citizenship at the county clerk and recorder's office.

The bill also ensures that only voters who have provided proof of citizenship can cast a regular in-person ballot.

Finally, the bill requires the computerized statewide voter registration list maintained by the secretary of state to note whether an elector has shown proof of citizenship.
