Protected Voter Registration

Address Confidentiality Program Logo

Any participant, if eligible, may register or re-register to vote as an ACP Protected Voter.

ACP protected voters can participate in national, state, and local elections without endangering the confidentiality of their real address. By registering as an ACP protected voter, this ensures that a program participant’s real address will not appear on any public registered voter lists that may be made public. The security of this process is similar to the process afforded police and judges.

Participants should only register to vote through the ACP process.

Participants are strongly encouraged not to register to vote through any other process other than through the ACP. By law, MVD, DES, and other social service agencies must ask everyone if they want to register to vote. Participants who register outside of the ACP process will be required to provide her/his real address and staff cannot guarantee the protection of the record.
