Implementation of the Restore the Vote Amendment Act of 2020

This report covers the Restore the Vote Amendment Act of 2020. It was created in collaboration with the Board of Elections. This report covers the period from the November 3, 2020 General Election through the November 8, 2022 General Election.

D.C. Official Code §1-1001.05 (m) mandates that the Board of Elections (“the Board” ) and the Corrections Information Council (“the DC CIC”) provide, on a biennial basis, a report to the Mayor and Council on the Restore the Vote Amendment Act of 20201 ("the Act"). This act ensures that all DC residents in custody are able to register to vote. The Act also requires that the DC Department of Corrections (DOC) become an automatic voter registration agency. Because people from DC who are incarcerated for a felony conviction are confined in the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), implementation of the Act requires coordination with the BOP and the DOC.
