Both the House and Senate election committees took up bill packages last week that would allow residents to register to vote online. The legislation, supported by Secretary of State Ruth Johnson, would allow voters to register online at ExpressSOS.com. The system would authenticate identities by matching applicants with their driver’s license information.
The League will continue to track this issue and provide updates as they become available.
