Today, Secretary of State Pedro A. Cortés reported that Pennsylvania online voter registration will soon cross the 100K mark.
“Since August, nearly 100,000 voters have discovered for themselves the ease and accessibility of online voter registration,” Cortés said during a press conference. “At the same time, Pennsylvania’s counties have gained more accurate voter rolls and realized savings in processing applications.”
According to a statement from the Governor’s office, the online system (which is available in English and Spanish) is more secure for applicants because the form is transmitted directly to the appropriate county voter registration office for processing.
The online voter registration site is also directly linked to PennDOT’s Motor Voter system, so if an applicant has a driver’s license or PennDOT ID card, the signature that is already on file with PennDOT will be transferred to the voter’s record.
