This bill requires the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) to automatically register or update a person's voter registration as part of the process of applying for or renewing a driver's license. Under current law, each applicant for a driver's license is offered by the MVC an opportunity to simultaneously register to vote. The bill provides that the MVC would automatically register to vote any person who applies for a special learner's permit, an examination permit, a probationary driver's license, a basic driver's license, or a nondriver identification card, or for renewal of any license or identification card, according to the permanent address provided by the applicant, unless the applicant specifically declines the automatic voter registration. The chief administrator of the MVC would forward the personal information required to register to vote in an electronic format to the Division of Elections in the Department of State. Submission of an application would serve as consent to be registered to vote at the permanent address provided by the applicant, unless the applicant specifically declines the automatic registration. Additionally, the chief administrator would provide for the following statement to be printed on the application for a special learner's permit, an examination permit, a provisional driver's license, a basic driver's license, or a nondriver identification card: "By submitting this application, I am consenting to registering to vote in the State of New Jersey and I am legally permitted to do so as a citizen of the United States of America. If under 18 years of age, I understand that I will be registered to vote when I attain the age of 18 years."
