The new law took effect on January 1, 2016. It is meant to increase voter engagement by allowing voters an easy way to register. After going to the DMV, you will receive a card in the mail that will give you three options.
- Do nothing – you will registered as a nonaffiliated voter (not a member of a political party). You would not be allowed to vote in the primaries.
- Pick a party – Choose a party of your choice and return the card.
- Opt out – Use the card to decline to participate in the voting responsibility.
