LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska officials say they’ve received 870 applications for online voter registration over a 24-hour period.
Secretary of State John Gale says the applications were received online at www.ne.gov/go/NEreg2vote . Fifty-nine counties in the state received registrations.
Nebraska is the 24th state to enact an online voter registration system, following Pennsylvania, Hawaii and Massachusetts earlier this year. Nebraska’s website is also available in Spanish.
Gale says he’s very pleased with the numbers. He says registration takes a few minutes to complete.
