CTG UAlbany led a multi sector and interdisciplinary team consisting of the Government Law Center (GLC) at Albany Law School, International Data Corporation (IDC), and the Nelson A. Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy, at the University at Albany in a project entitled “Envisioning an Elections Future: Exploring the Technology, Policy, Management and Legal Environments in Voter Registration,” where six parallel investigations made up the formal analysis:

  • Clarifying Voter Registration Designations and Identifying Voter Registration Components and Alternatives
  • Examining How Federal and State Laws Shape Voter Registration in N.Y.
  • Understanding Voter Registration Across the US
  • Modeling Voter Registration Processes in NYS Counties
  • Testing the Security and Resiliency of Voter Registration Alternatives
  • Understanding the Security and Resiliency of Voter Registration in NYS Counties

This report is the culmination of the project and presents the results of the investigations, including ten high level findings and two recommendations for next steps.
