Monday, April 27, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
With an announcement that “it is time to modernize the Texas voter registration process and allow Texans to complete voter registration online,” Elaine Wiant, president of the League of Women Voters of Texas, declared the group’s support of two online voter registration bills up for public hearing at the Texas State Legislature. HB 76 and HB 953 are both scheduled for the House Elections Committee meeting today. According to a news release from the League of Women Voters of Texas, “The same Texas system that allows renewal of driver’s licenses, vehicle registration, setting up tax payment plans, applying for and renewing concealed handgun licenses and many other government transactions should also include voter registration.”
