Covered California failing to comply with National Voter Registration Act

by - November 21, 2013

But despite successfully making affordable health care coverage accessible to millions of Californians, Covered California is failing to expand access to voter registration as required by state and federal law.  California was the first in the country to designate the state’s Health Benefit Exchange as a voter registration agency under the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).

That means all Californians applying for health coverage through the state exchange should simultaneously be offered the opportunity to register to vote.
