Online Voter Registration Information

Before a local League undertakes to register voters using the online voter registration system that went into effect in July 2015, it may help League members using that online registration system to go through the various screens voters will see and become familiar with them in case there are any questions.

Here is a report from the Elections Division of the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s office that first outlines the system, then shows the screen shots for the verification of Registry of Motor Vehicles ID process, then shows the screen shots for the actual voter registration process.
