OLATHE, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NIC Inc. (NASDAQ: EGOV), the dominant provider of digital government services, supports the initiative of the National Association of Secretaries of States (NASS) in reminding citizens to register to vote during National Voter Registration Month in September.
In its nearly 25 year history, NIC has helped a number of states create efficiencies in the voter registration process. The company has developed the online voter registration system in Utah, an online service to request an absentee ballot in Maine, and, most recently, partnered with the Secretary of State, Department of Motor Vehicles, and Office of the Chief Information Officer in Nebraska to develop NEReg2Vote. NEReg2Vote is a new bilingual voter registration app that was named one of StateScoop 50’s Innovation of the Year in 2015.
“Voting is at the heart of our democracy,” said Harry Herington, NIC’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. “Registering to vote is an important first step in our democratic process, and we are proud to partner with NASS and various states across the U.S. to help create awareness during National Voter Registration Month.”
The nation’s Secretaries of State established National Voter Registration Month in September as a non-partisan means of encouraging voter participation and increasing awareness about state requirements and deadline for voting, establishing www.CanIVote.org to help voters find official state resources.
