The PetitionProblemSolutionState BreakdownYou Can Help
Only 15 states currently allow their residents to register to vote online. The other states still require voters to print a form and then mail it with a stamp and envelope to a state elections office. This snail-mail method wastes paper, leads to human error when forms are misread, results in lower voter participation rates, and costs states more money than an online system.
