Electronic Voter Registration System

Currently there is legislation pending in the Pennsylvania General Assembly that would mandate the implementation of an electronic or online voter registration system.

Pending Legislation– April 17, 2013: PA Senate passed SB 37, moving forward on an important update to the state’s voter registration system. This bill requires that an electronic voter registration system be created to enable citizens to register and/or update their voter registration information online.

This enhancement increases accessibility and streamlines the current registration process. 17 states across the country already offer online voter registration, a number that is likely to grow, with similar legislation pending in 15 states, including PA.
