    Under the requirements of a new state law, the RMV will provide basic information from all license transactions to the Secretary of State’s office for voter registration purposes.

    The RMV will no longer collect or enter information regarding political party affiliation into ATLAS due to Automatic Voter Registration.

    Revised Applications

    The following applications have been revised due to Automatic Voter Registration and will be available online for January 1st.

    • Driver’s License, Learner’s Permit or ID Card Application (LIC100)
    • Commercial Learner’s Permit or Driver’s License Application (LIC104)
    • Liquor ID Card Application (LIC112)

    The option “Do not use my information for voter registration” was added and the option to indicate political party or designation was removed.
