Oregon House looks at online voting, citizen access -

Oregon would move deeper into the electronic age under three bills a House committee considered Wednesday that would make it easier to register to vote, cast an absentee ballot and keep track of how the state government spends taxpayer money.

One measure, House Bill 2386, would direct the secretary of state to develop a system for online voter registration. It would use digital copies of voters' signatures on driver's licenses or state identification cards for voter registration purposes.

That bill drew little comment, but another measure, House Bill 2511, was more controversial. It would allow military personnel and other longtime absentee voters who live overseas to cast their ballots electronically.
