Online voter registration is now live in Pennsylvania
Starting today, online voter registration — in both English or Spanish — is a reality in Pennsylvania, announced Gov. Tom Wolf and Secretary of State Pedro Cortés.
With the launch of online voter registration, the commonwealth expects to make the process more convenient, while improving accuracy and reducing costs.
Online voter registration is currently available in 22 additional states. According to the Pew Charitable Trusts, states that have implemented online voter registration have seen savings ranging from $0.50 to $2.34 per application.
Additionally, current registered voters are now able to update their address or party affiliation online.
The online registration application is now available at register.votesPA.com.
October 5 is the last day to register before the Nov. 3 election.
“Online Voter Registration is about making the voting experience more convenient and more accessible. It is about giving citizens an easier way to exercise their right to vote and establishing a clearer connection between the political system and the citizens.” — Governor Tom Wolf
“Pennsylvanians have grown accustomed to doing business online, whether it is shopping, banking or filing their tax returns. As a natural extension, they want the convenience of registering to vote using their own computer or mobile device.” — Sec. of State, Pedro Cortés
