Walker signs electronic voter registration bill
Governor Scott Walker has signed a bill that allows people to register to vote online into law.
The governor signed the bill privately at the state Capitol yesterday morning, less than 24 hours after the Senate passed it on a voice vote on Tuesday afternoon. The Assembly passed the bill last month.
The bill requires the state Government Accountability Board to maintain a secure online registration form. Eligible voters with a valid state driver's license, state ID card or veteran's ID card can register through the form.
Walker said in a news release that the bill would help senior citizens and veterans to vote.
Thirty other states, as well as the District of Columbia, offer online registration.
