Signing up to vote — Give Form H0025, Voter Registration Application, to clients who indicate an interest in registering to vote and who meet the voting registration requirements. ARs or representative payees also may take Form H0025 to the client to complete. Mail Form H0025 when the client does not have a face-to-face interview or the client reports a change of address by phone or by mail. If requested, assist in the completion of Form H0025.

If the applicant or client declines to register to vote during an in-person interview, ask the client to sign Form H1350, Opportunity to Register to Vote. Mail Form H1350 to a client who did not have a face-to-face interview who declines the opportunity to register to vote, based on receipt of Form H0025.

Voter Registration Status — Check the appropriate box under Agency Use Only and sign.
