Online Voting Registration: A Process Made Easy

Federal, State and County and other local governments have one major goal in mind when instituting an online voter registration system and that is to simplify the registration process so that more voters can vote on election day.  However, it is more than just getting voters to vote, it also means that overall election costs, fraud and errors in data can be reduced through well-planned automation. In addition, the overall registration and voter experience for constituents is an important objective that many elections jurisdictions also recognize as being an integral factor in getting higher and more accurate voter rolls.

The way it was

Before the dawn of the internet voter registration, were carried out by enumerator officials. The role of enumerator was to go door-to-door collecting the names of eligible voters in each household.  Enumerators would register voters and in the end facilitate a valid voters list. Voters lists are meant to make the voting experience much faster, keep track of who has voted, and in many voting jurisdictions set spending limits for candidates.  Today, the process has evolved in that registrations are mailed out to constituents and the process has been somewhat streamlined, however it still burden by a manual paper approach requiring a great deal of seasonal and full time staff.

Upcoming Events

NASCIO 2010 Annual Conference - September 26-29, 2010*
Innovation and Opportunity: Transforming Government Through IT

With a strong program, excellent venue and so many emerging issues to address, we expect excellent participation in this year's event.

NASCIO conferences provide a unique opportunity for state government and corporate members to discuss the issues facing the information technology field in the public and private sector. These events offer members a break from the many conferences that promote the marketing and sale of products or services through trade shows and exhibitions. Instead, we invite our corporate participants to sit side-by-side with state attendees to discuss trends and build relationships. There is no better place to do this in a non-product-marketing forum. Educational programs are centered on information technology issues that affect the public and private sectors. By bringing together all interested parties, association members can map strategies, develop positions and act responsibly for the benefit of all involved.

*Open Text is an interactive technology sponsor of this event.
