Wisconsin Senate Poised to Give Final Approval for Online Voter Registration
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Senate is poised to give final approval to a bill that would allow Wisconsin voters to register online.
Thirty states plus the District of Columbia already offer online registration. Under the Wisconsin bill, voters would need a valid driver's license or state ID card to register.
The bill also would create officials who can register people at the polls as well as at nursing homes and during in-person absentee voting. The proposal would eliminate special registration deputies who help voters register at events and go door-to-door.
