Three Years Later, Online Voter Registration Is Big In PA


HARRISBURG – It’s the third anniversary of online voter registration in Pennsylvania. Since August 27, 2015, 1,092,407 Pennsylvanians have taken advantage of online voter registration at The system, available in English and Spanish, offers several advantages. It is more secure because electronic applications are submitted directly to the appropriate county voter registration office for processing. In contrast, traditional paper applications containing personal information may pass through several hands before reaching the correct destination. State and county election officials have found that electronic voter registration applications have improved accuracy, increased the integrity of the voting rolls, reduced time-consuming data entry, and yielded considerable cost savings. Pennsylvania was the 23rd state to make voter registration available online. Currently, 37 states and the District of Columbia have implemented online voter registration. Pennsylvanians have until October 9 to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election.
