The Online Voter Registration Debate |

The Online Voter Registration Debate |

A new bill before Congress would make registering to vote as simple as clicking a mouse. The Voter Registration Modernization Act would require all states to allow voters to register online by 2012. Since Arizona pioneered online registration, states including Washington, Louisiana, and Utah have signed on. New York, New Jersey, and Michigan are considering similar bills.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D., Calif.), who introduced the federal bill, calls online registration “a commonsense approach” that would mean new convenience for would-be voters. But critics worry that elections could be easily manipulated.
