Dayton signs revival of online voter registration | StarTribune

April 29, 2014

Gov. Mark Dayton signed the Minnesota Legislature's revival of online voter registration just a day after a judge struck down an online system Secretary of State Mark Ritchie created.

"I am very pleased that this bill passed with bipartisan support in both bodies, and I look forward to signing it into law today," Dayton said in a statement.

Although few Republicans supported the measure in the Senate on Tuesday, Dayton noted that, given the House's overwhelming support a few weeks ago, 62 of the Legislature's 89 Republicans backed it.

The quick action means that Minnesotans' access to online registration, which more than 3,600 voters have used since September, will continue unabated.
