New Hampshire Senator Bette Lasky (D-Nashua) introduced legislation to establish online voter registration for New Hampshire voters.
A public hearing on the bill was held Wednesday in the Senate Public and Municipal Affairs Committee.
“Allowing our citizens to register to vote online would help create a more accessible system and increase the number of citizens exercising one of their most important rights,” said Senator Lasky. “As the First-In-The-Nation Presidential Primary state, New Hampshire needs to continually move forward as technology advances and be an example to the rest of the country.”
Twenty-three states currently use online voter registration. Five more states will implement online voter registration this year.
