Lincoln, Neb. Nebraska residents who are eligible to vote will be able to register and update their registrations online under a new system that Secretary of State John Gale plans to launch this week.
The secretary of state's office will unveil the project Tuesday as part of National Voter Registration Day.
Gale has said the new system will mark one of the biggest technological advancements in voter registration in years. It also has been shown to boost voter registrations in other states that adopted the technology. Nebraska joins 23 other states that have started using an online registration system.
Sen. Adam Morfeld of Lincoln, the executive director of Nebraskans for Civic Reform, says online voter registration is a major step toward modernizing the state's election system.
