Promoting Access to Voting

In March 2021, President Biden issued Executive Order (EO) 14019 on Promoting Access to Voting. The EO stated that “(i)t is the responsibility of the Federal Government to expand access to, and education about, voter registration and election information,” and directed all federal agencies to “consider ways to expand citizens’ opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process.”[1]

In response, the EEOC provides the following information and resources about voter registration and the election process in the United States.
