Online Voter Registration

Online voter registration allows people to register to vote online using a portal maintained by state election officials. Online voter registration is the fastest growing voting rights reform; beginning with Washington State in 2007, 29 states have enacted online voter registration measures.

Data from these states has shown that online voter registration is a safe, cost-effective way of modernizing the registration process and increasing turnout, especially among young and minority voters. In Arizona, for example, registration rates among 18-25 year olds jumped from 29% to 53% after the state implemented online voter registration.
