The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (www.eac.gov) provides a registration form, called the National Mail Voter Registration (NVRA) Form, in fifteen different languages. This form can be used to register first time voters, or to update registration information. You can access this form here.
Election officials are required to process registrations submitted using the NVRA form. In addition, many states are legally required to provide their state specific voter registration forms in languages other than English.
To see if your state provides an online voter registration process in multiple languages:
- Go to the State Voting Requirements page.
- Choose your state, and on the following page select your election location and “State Lookup Tools."
- Click the link next to the question “Can I Register to Vote Online?”
If your state offers the voter registration form in multiple languages, there will be a language preference option on your state’s website.
If you do not see an option for language preference, return to this page and follow the instructions above to fill out the NVRA form.
