  •  The federally run exchanges are included... (11+ / 0-)

    ...because the Affordable Care Act offers consumers public assistance via Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program and tax subsidies. Government lawyers say they must therefore comply with requirements of the NVRA as does any public assistance program covered by the NVRA.  

    The federally run exchanges operate independently in each state and voter registration that is NVRA compliant must be integrated. The federal Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid included voter registration to meet these requirements.

    Note: Some lawyers disagree on the matter and say NONE of the exchanges are covered by NVRA.

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
