SPRINGFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn released the following statement on the Senate’s passage of House Bill 2418, which allows citizens to register online to vote, one of the governor’s 2013 State of the State proposals:

“I want to thank Senator Don Harmon for his good work and all the members of the Illinois Senate who voted for this bill to make voter registration available online.
