Online voter registration in the 50 states
This page contains online voter registration information pertaining to the 50 states, up to date for the 2013 elections.

The availability of online voter registration has widely increased over the last five years. For the 2008 elections, only 2 states, Arizona and Washington, offered online registration. As of 2012, 13 states offered online registration. In 2012 and 2013 an additional 4 states passed legislation which, once implemented, will permit the process. 13 additional states have proposed bills in the current 2013 legislative session.[1]

In a time of disagreement between the parties on numerous aspects of election law, online voter registration has supporters on both sides of the aisle. “It’s red states, blue states, small states, big states,” said Jennie Bowser, an elections expert at the National Conference of State Legislatures. “It’s happening across the board.”[2]
