201.161 DRIVER'S LICENSE AND IDENTIFICATION CARD APPLICATIONS.

The Department of Public Safety shall change its applications for an original, duplicate, or change of address driver's license or identification card so that the forms may also serve as voter registration applications. The forms must contain spaces for all information collected by voter registration applications prescribed by the secretary of state. Applicants for driver's licenses or identification cards must be asked if they want to register to vote at the same time and that information must be transmitted at least weekly by electronic means to the secretary of state. Pursuant to the Help America Vote Act of 2002, Public Law 107-252, the computerized driver's license record containing the voter's name, address, date of birth, driver's license number or state identification number, county, town, and city must be made available for access by the secretary of state and interaction with the statewide voter registration system.
