Voting Rights Policy And Guidance

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.

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.
