Registration as Close as Your Keyboard
The Internet has the potential to be an important tool to engage new voters, particular young people, and to make it easier for all voters to remain engaged in the process.
As states increasingly add online voter registration to the mix, legislators should construct a system that maximizes the number of eligible citizens who can take advantage of the opportunity to register online and keep their information updated.
As online registration becomes more widely available, it will continue to increase the accuracy of the voter rolls, reduce costs, and bring more Americans into the electoral process.
