HARTFORD, Conn. – The U.S. Department of Justice said it’s planning to sue Connecticut for failure to comply with a section of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, if it doesn’t fix the problem.
The section of the law the Justice Department is accusing Connecticut of violating is related to motor vehicle registration.
“Our investigation indicates widespread noncompliance with Section 5 in Connecticut,” Vanita Gupta, principal deputy assistant attorney general, said in a April 15 letter to state officials. “Throughout the state, it appears that applications for a Connecticut driver’s license or non-driver identification card generally do not serve as applications for voter registration with respect to elections for Federal office, and that change of address forms do not serve as notification of a change of address for voter registration purposes if the applicant is moving between two towns.”
