    Labor Quote: Andrea Blackwelder Stanley

    Stanley is the IATSE 22 member who said that the display of flags on the National Mall at last week’s inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris -- set up by members of her local -- “represents opportunity. Opportunity to earn a living wage and to make something beautiful to lift the hearts and spirits of a nation that is mourning so much loss and division. To me, it represents all the people of the U.S. coming together as one to be healed.”

    The National Voter Registration Form
    The National Mail Voter Registration Form allows you to register to vote from anywhere in the United States. Be sure to follow the General Instructions, as well as the specific instructions for your State, contained in the PDF download. Visit the Election Assistance Commission website for more information.

    Who Can Use the NVR Form
    If you are a U.S. citizen who lives or has an address within the United States, you can use this form to:

    • Register to vote in your State
    • Report a change of name to your voter registration office
    • Report a change of address to your voter registration office
    • Register with a political party
    • Not all states accept the NVR form printed on white paper, make sure to verify that your state will accept this form. State instructions are included at the end of the form.
    • Exceptions: North Dakota does not have voter registration; Wyoming, by State law, cannot accept the National Form; and New Hampshire town and city clerks will accept the National Form only as a request for their own mail-in absentee voter registration form.

    Please do not use this application if you live outside the United States and its territories and have no home (legal) address in this country, or if you are in the military stationed away from home. Use the Federal Postcard Application available to you from military bases, American embassies, or consular offices.

    Eligibility
    Each State has its own laws about who may register and vote.

    Note: All States require that you be a United States citizen by birth or naturalization to register to vote in federal and State elections. Federal law makes it illegal to falsely claim US citizenship to register to vote in any federal, State or local election. Also Note: You cannot be registered to vote in more than one place at a time.

    Where can I register to vote in my local town?
    Registration applications may be obtained from either the local election official in your county or city, or through registration outreach programs sponsored by such groups as the League of Women Voters. In addition, you can also register to vote when applying for a driver’s license or identity card at State DMV or driver's licensing offices, State offices providing public assistance, State offices providing State-funded programs for the disabled, and at armed forces recruitment offices.

    Many States also offer registration opportunities at public libraries, post offices, unemployment offices, and at public high schools and universities. Colleges, universities, and trade schools participating in federal student loan programs also offer voter registration applications to enrolled students prior to general elections.
