Washington state to allow Facebook voter registration

Reuters: Washington will become the first state in the US to allow its residents to register to vote through popular social media network Facebook.

The program will launch later this month, according to the secretary of state’s office.

"Online voter registration has existed in Washington since 2008, but the latest effort to increase voter participation is designed for users who already have a Facebook account."
