The implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will bring millions of Americans into Community Health Centers and other social service agencies. This process offers a unique opportunity to integrate voter registration into health insurance and Medicaid enrollment services. Many health centers and other agencies already offer ongoing non-partisan voter registration assistance as part of their Medicaid and WIC application and renewal process to comply with the National Voter Registration Act.

We will now have a chance to offer this same service to millions more people. We can implement the same voter registration process whether it is required by the NVRA or not.
