States can receive online registration applications securely — from designated government agencies, universities, popular websites, and organizations like Rock the Vote — by building an OVR platform. A simple platform approach will dramatically expand states' reach by driving new registrations securely through a wide range of online sites, mobile applications, and other programming.
A new white paper — Connected OVR — details existing state laws and technologies, and recommends the creation of simple, durable OVR platforms. The paper addresses how states can leverage the expertise of its designated partners while retaining full control on the registration process.
Partners can submit the registration information they have gathered from users in a normalized, digitized format that is easy for state officials to use.
