Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand to introduce bill to expand online voter registration

I’m a big believer in getting as many legally eligible voters into the democratic process.

And now, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has announced she will introduce a bill to make online voter registration available to every eligible voter.

Via the Associated Press:

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand says people across the country should be able use their computers, smartphones or electronic tablets to register to vote. The New York Democrat is announcing legislation Sunday that would force the 23 states that don’t have an online registration system to establish one. The bill also would expand enrollment access in states that currently have online systems by making them open to all eligible voters without requiring a state-issued ID. Gillibrand says nearly half of eligible voters don’t have access to online registration.

This is a good thing. Thanks for the leadership, Sen. Gillibrand.
