Some states have offices with the title Board of Elections. However, these state-level offices are usually established for the purpose of elections enforcement and the investigation of complaints.

In addition, all but three states have a Secretary of State with some elections oversight authority.
Do voters have to register every year or every election?
No. Once a voter is registered, he or she is permanently registered and will remain on the voter list until the voter is removed due to death or relocating to a new voting district.
