In electoral systems, voter registration (or enrollment) is the requirement that a person otherwise eligible to vote must register (or enroll) on an electoral roll before they will be entitled or permitted to vote. The rules governing registration vary between jurisdictions. In most jurisdictions, voting and registration is optional, while in others (such as Australia) voting and registration are compulsory for those of voting age. In some jurisdictions, enrollment may be automatic; for example, when a person registers a change of residence with a government agency for a driver's license, the government agency may forward the information to the electoral agency to automatically update voter registration.

  • In electoral systems, voter registration (or enrollment) is the requirement that a person otherwise eligible to vote must register (or enroll) on an electoral roll before they will be entitled or permitted to vote. The rules governing registration vary between jurisdictions. In most jurisdictions, voting and registration is optional, while in others (such as Australia) voting and registration are compulsory for those of voting age. In some jurisdictions, enrollment may be automatic; for example, when a person registers a change of residence with a government agency for a driver's license, the government agency may forward the information to the electoral agency to automatically update voter registration. In some jurisdictions, enrollment may require an application being made by an eligible voter and registered persons to re-register or update registration details when they change residence or other relevant information. Some jurisdictions have "election day registration" and others do not require registration, or may require production of evidence of entitlement to vote at time of voting. In jurisdictions where registration is optional, an effort may be made to encourage persons otherwise eligible to vote to register, in what is called as a voter registration drive. In countries where resident registration is compulsory, voter registration usually does not exist, since voter eligibility can be determined from the residence register. Even in countries where registration is the individual's responsibility, many reformers, seeking to maximize voter turnout, argue for a wider availability of the required forms, or more ease of process by having more places where they can register. The United States, for example, the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 ("Motor Voter Law") and similar laws require states to offer voter registration at motor vehicle departments (driver's license offices) as well as disability centers, public schools, and public libraries, in order to offer more access to the system. State authorities are also required to accept mail-in voter registrations. Many jurisdictions also offer online registrations. (en)

  • 登記選民是關於選民的一個選舉制度。是指一個地區一个有投票资格的公民,只有在登记为选民后才可以称为登记选民,才有投票的资格。每个公民只能在一个地方登记为选民,而不能同时在两地投票。 一般的选举规定投票率要超过50%投票结果才有效,这个比例是以登记选民'为基础来计算的。例如说,一个有1000人的选区,如果只有500人登记成为登记选民,那么只要有251人参加最后的投票,投票结果就有效。 所以,如果有人想要做票的话,也可以通过增加公民进行选民登记的办法来实现。 (zh)
