Statement from Governor Pat Quinn on Passage of Online Voter Registration
State of the State proposal to help bring election process into the 21st century

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.

“As I proposed in my State of the State address, this cost-effective measure will move our election process into the 21st century and make registering to vote easier for everyday people.

“Our democracy will be stronger if more voters raise their voices at the ballot box.

“I look forward to working with members of the House to get this bill to my desk.”
