Voters can register online in California

Sen. Yee authors bill that allows registration on the Internet

Governor Jerry Brown has signed legislation that will allow online voter registration.

State Sen. Leland Yee, whose district includes Woodside and Portola Valley, authored the bill.

Under SB 397, people can enter their voter information online and the county elections office would use the voter's signature from the Department of Motor Vehicles to verify authenticity.

"This law will increase voter registration, increase the accuracy of the registration information, and reduce election costs," said Mark Church, San Mateo County's chief election officer.

The Secretary of State will determine when the new system comes online. Sen. Yee said he hopes it will be available by the June 2012 presidential primary election.
