Bill Number: SB18-150
Year: 2018
ACLU Position: Support

Description:

Section 1 of the bill allows a person on parole to preregister to
vote. A person who preregisters is required to meet all the requirements
of a person who registers. When the secretary of state (secretary) receives
notice that the person has been released from parole, the person is
automatically registered to vote. Section 2 makes a conforming
amendment to the self-affirmation made by a person who is registering or
preregistering.
Section 3 requires the division of adult parole (division) to
facilitate the voting rights of people being released from parole. The
division is required to provide information to individuals on parole about
their right to preregister to vote. When a person is being released from
parole, the division is required to provide information about the person’s
right to vote, how the person can register or update their registration, how
to obtain and cast a ballot, and how to get voter information materials.
The division must send a report of individuals being released from parole
to the secretary in order to allow the registration of any individual who
has preregistered.
Section 4 requires a probation officer to provide information to an
individual on probation about the person’s right to vote, how the person
can register or update their registration, how to obtain and cast a ballot,
and how to get voter information materials.
