A bipartisan array of groups wants registering to vote to be as simple as a few clicks and an Internet connection. Their members urged state House lawmakers Tuesday to advance a proposal allowing online voter registration in Pennsylvania.
It's already legal in 17 states and available in 11.
In Pennsylvania, the state Senate unanimously approved an online voter registration measure. It is now before the House State Government Committee.
The panel's chairman, Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler), said there are no plans at this time to hold a vote on the bill.
