Hunt County officials believe the future of signing up to vote is as close as your keyboard.
Hunt County Elections Administrator Mina Cook said her office is joining with agencies across Texas to support the establishment of online voter registration.
“We want to make it easier, so you can just click on a button,” Cook said.
The Hunt County Commissioners Court is scheduled to consider a resolution in support of the measure during today’s regular session, starting at 10 a.m. inside the Auxiliary Courtroom, 2700 Johnson Street in Greenville.
“This is something a lot of us are wanting to support,” Cook said of online voter registration, which will be up to state lawmakers to implement.
Cook said registering to vote should be just as easy as renewing automobile registration through the Department of Public Safety.
“It is all electronic now,” Cook said. “It is the way of the future.”
The State of Texas already allows voters to file a name and/or address change on their Voter Registration card online, though the Voter Registration Name and Address Change application, but only if the new address is in the same county where they are currently registered.
