WASHINGTON, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Alabama failed to comply with U.S. law over registering eligible voters at state motor vehicle agencies, and has agreed to implement changes following a federal investigation, the U.S. Justice Department said on Friday.

The department's Civil Rights Division "found widespread noncompliance" with the National Voter Registration Act, which requires states to provide opportunities for voter registration when people get their driver's license or other similar documents, DOJ said in a statement. Alabama was "working quickly and cooperatively" to resolve the issue, it added.
