The online women's network iVillage.com has teamed with the Internet election
company Election. com to enable people to register to vote online.
iVillage.com's Election 2000 page provides links to state voter registration
forms. The site includes information on each state's voting rules as well
as the specific information required by the Federal Election Commission.
"Online voter registration opens up unprecedented opportunities to reinvigorate
participation in the political process," said Joe Mohen, Election. com's
chief executive officer, in a release.
Once people have filled out the online form, Election.com prints the
data onto a federal voter registration form and mails it to the voter to
proofread and sign. Voters should have their paper forms in hand two weeks
after filling out the online form.
The voter then mails the registration to her state election office,
whose address is pre-printed on a return envelope.
