To advise applicants and recipients of the opportunity to:

When to Prepare

The individual does not need to sign Form H1350 if the case record verifies the individual does not meet U.S. citizenship or age requirements and the individual acknowledges the noncitizen status, or if the individual has a face-to-face interview that includes voter registration information on the application, renewal/recertification or change report form.

Ask the individual to sign Form H1350 at application, renewal/recertification or when reporting a change of address if the individual indicates he does not wish to register to vote or change his voter registration information.

Mail Form H1350 to an individual who did not have a face-to-face interview if the individual notifies the local office of the decision to decline the opportunity to register to vote, based on the receipt of Form H0025, Voter Registration Application.
