The Voting Section has published a series of Questions and Answers to the National Voter Registration Act as aid to guide jurisdictions and to inform interested members of the public about the Act’s requirements.

To assist jurisdictions required to comply with Section 5 of the Act, the Attorney General has issued a set of Procedures for the Administration of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which is also published at 28 C.F.R., Part 51.

The Attorney General has published Guidance Concerning Redistricting under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act to assist those jurisdictions required to comply with Section 5.

Some jurisdictions are covered by the language minority provisions of the Voting Rights Act, Sections 4(e), 4(f)(4), or 203. For those jurisdictions, the information concerning Implementation of the Provisions of the Voting Rights Act Regarding Language Minority Groups may be useful. This is also available at 28 C.F.R., Part 55.

The Department has prepared information to assist those jurisdictions seeking to terminate or “bailout” from coverage under the Voting Rights Act’s special provisions.
