Online voter registration is a policy that improves the voter registration process by allowing voters to fill out and submit registration forms electronically through online systems set up by their state. In most states, these systems work in tandem with, and are checked against, information from driver’s licenses or other state-issued IDs. Online voter registration can increase the convenience, accuracy, and efficiency of our election systems.
