Pennsylvania’s new online voter registration draws thousands

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Thousands of Pennsylvanians went online to register to vote or changed their registrations in the first year of the new system.

Monday was the deadline for registering to vote in the Nov.3 general election and Secretary of State Pedro Cortés said Tuesday that 32,428 people used the online system. More than 20,000 were new registrants and the rest were people who changed the information on their registration.

On Aug. 27, Pennsylvania became the 23rd state to allow online registrations.

Since then, two more states – Nebraska and West Virginia – have followed suit.
