New York Introduces New Online Voter Registration System

Register online by Sunday, or Friday, Aug. 17 at DMV and Board of Election offices, to vote in next month's primary.

Gov. Cuomo unveiled an online voter registration system on Thursday that allows New Yorkers to register from their own computers – and soon from new electronic devices at Department of Motor Vehicles offices, according to the New York Post.

Newly registered voters can even cast ballots in next month’s primaries if they register and enroll in a party online by Sunday. Friday is the in-person deadline at DMV and Board of Elections offices, says the Post.

To register, applicants need a driver’s license or a nondriver’s identification card, and can log in to my.dmv.ny.gov.

GOP political consultant Jack Cookfair told the paper that the new online registration system could help Democrats by mobilizing new voters in New York, a traditionally blue state.

“Any time you go out of your way to make it easier for people to enroll, it has a tendency to hurt Republicans. The bigger question is motivating them [newly registered voters] to actually vote.”

OK, so you AGREE that Romney and Ryan intend to and should increase taxes on the poor and lower them on the rich. Mewdow Lane is right, according to you.
