That's pretty cool. I was on a team that was doing that for AAA's
regional offices. Fewer offices, but the databases were huge and quite
diverse in content. I actually wound up writing the tool that
translated the databases, and then did a bit of programming with the
tool to make the translations. You'd be surprised at how big a task
that is.

I think that all voting registration systems need to be centralized
where possible, and more accessible. The one here in Colorado is an
antiquated mess that barely does the job.
