Opponents say

• "With [the National Voter Registration Act of 1993] and its appropriate implementation by States, voters can register by applying for a driver's license, through uniform mail application, or by applying in person at various agencies designated by the States. As a result, registration for Federal election[s] will become as accessible as possible, while the integrity of the electoral process is clearly preserved."

Proponents say

• "Election integrity is central to the bedrock of our constitutional republic. Currently, though federal law requires an individual to be a U.S. citizen to vote in federal elections, it requires states to accept merely a signed attestation from an individual that he or she is a U.S. citizen – without any further proof of citizenship. This lax procedure, to register individuals to vote in states that have strict citizenship requirements for voter registration, is a threat to the integrity of our elections." Source: Rep. Andy Biggs (Republican, Arizona, District 5)
• "Loopholes in the voter registration process increases the risk of voter fraud and threatens the integrity of our democracy." Source: Rep. Greg Steube (Republican, Florida, District 17)
