Secretary Johnson Testifies in Support of Online Voter Registration

Accurate and secure, online registration technology meets elections’ administration challenges of the 21st Century

rjtestifyingSecretary of State Ruth Johnson today thanked the Michigan House and Senate election committees for their support of online voter registration application, an initiative she has long championed.

“Thirty-eight states offer online voter registration tools,” Johnson said. “Michigan is uniquely positioned to do the same because the Secretary of State’s Office oversees both driver licensing and elections, which provides a secure database that makes it easy to authenticate a voter’s address, identification and signature against their driver or state ID information.”

Bill sponsors include Reps. Julie Calley and Michael Webber, and Sens. Judy Emmons, Goeff Hansen, Dave Hildebrand, Mike Nofs and Jim Stamas.
