HAVA 2002 Requirement
  • State shall implement a uniform, official,
    centralized, interactive, computerized statewide
    voter registration list defined, maintained, and
    administered at the State level.
  • Operational by 1 January 2006

12
Current HAVA Status
  • Texas does not meet HAVA 2002 requirements today
  • 173 counties currently use the Texas Voter
    Registration System (TVRS) to register and
    maintain their list of voters (200 expected in
    2006)
  • SOS office uses non-integrated Ballot
    Certification and Canvassing (BCC) and Election
    Night Reporting (ENR) systems with TVRS
  • We started the TEAM System Implementation Project
    to develop a new more comprehensive system

13
TEAM System Implementation Project Scope

Overview of New Business Rules and Processes
  • Counties not using the TEAM online application
    must update all voter record changes, additions
    and cancellations daily to the statewide database
  • Counties must verify an applicants Texas
    Drivers License/ID or last four digits of their
    Social Security Number before issuance of the
    voter certificate
  • If an applicants identity cannot be confirmed
  • the applicant will receive a modified Notice of
    Incomplete to verify their TDL/ID or SSN number
  • A new reason will be added to the Notice of
    Incomplete to accommodate this

36
Overview of New Business Rules and Processes
  • State will assign a unique identifier (VUID) to
    all voters. This number will appear on all
    certificates, notices to the voter, all system
    reports and lists used to conduct business. No
    more on-site voter registration!
  • All official voting lists will be generated using
    the database file maintained at the State level.
    A report can be created and posted to the web
    browser for printing locally

37
Overview of New Business Rules and Processes
  • The State desires a paperless process
  • No more NVRA reports or annual registration
    statements by precinct
  • We will no longer print and mail error reports
    from the update submissions, deceased or
    duplicate reports
  • These reports will be sent through the TEAM
    System interface
  • Access to GUI (application) for certain
    functionality
  • Address format must comply with E911 Format

38
E911 Format - 1
  • Block Number - The house number of the address
  • Designator - A designator used in the address
    (i.e. a fraction or non-numeric portion of the
    house number)
  • Direction Prefix ID - The pre-street name
    directional (E, W, N, W, etc.)
  • Street Name - The name of the street
  • Street Type ID - The type of street (street, ave,
    blvd, etc.)
  • Direction Suffix ID - The post-street type
    directional (E, W, N, W, etc.)

  • Unit Type ID -The type of unit in a multifamily
    housing address

  • City -The city in which the address occurs
  • State Code - The state portion of the residential
    address
  • Zip Code (ZIP_CODE) The address' postal code

40
Overview of New Business Rules and Processes
  • Counties must map the Street Type and Unit Types
    fields to State defined abbreviations
  • If the State identifies a strong match for a
    duplicate voter
  • The voter with the older effective date of
    registration (EDR) will be cancelled and the
    voter information appended to the new record
  • The new voter record will inherit the VUID.
    State will send notification through the TEAM
    system interface to the county with oldest
    (cancelled) EDR
  • Submission of voting history is required
  • Submission of jurisdictional information is
    required
