The primary responsibility of the DMV, or Department of Motor Vehicles, is to grant driver’s licenses and identification cards to state residents, but the DMV also plays an important role in voter registration. Citizens who want to register to vote can do so at the DMV, which will transfer the information, such as full name and address, to the local Board of Elections or Clerk’s Office. This can be an easy way to register to vote while applying for a license or renewing a license. The DMV may also be known as a DOL, or Department of Licensing.
