California Secretary of State promises online voter registration by Labor Day

The California Secretary of State confirmed in an e-mail sent late this afternoon (July 5, 2012) to Etopia News that California citizens will soon be able to register online to vote, writing:

“The Secretary of State’s office is coordinating with the State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the counties’ election management system vendors to develop the interface that will connect counties and the DMV.  This will allow for online voter registration.  We expect *full online voter registration to be available by Labor Day.  As always, voter registration records are maintained at the county level.

“* People can already fill out the Secretary of State’s online voter registration form at then just print, sign and mail it. (The form is even pre-addressed to the registrant’s county elections office.) “
