Alabama reached a settlement Friday with the Department of Justice and agreed to make changes to comply with the two-decade-old “motor voter” law designed to make it easier for people to register to vote.

The settlement agreement comes after the Justice Department said in September that it was planning to sue Alabama after an investigation found that Alabama was not abiding by the requirements of the 1993 law.
