Indiana is offering mobile voter registration. Voters can now use their cell phones to register to vote.

The Hoosier state has revamped its voter registration process by creating a more convenient way to register. Indiana residents are now using internet-capable mobile phones to register for the November 2nd elections. Secretary of State’s Office spokesperson Jim Gavin says, Indiana is the eighth state to offer online voter registration. In the past, residents had to mail in their registration.  Gavin says using mobile devices is a logical step since people are using paper less.

“We are booking our fights using our mobile devices; we are checking our stocks we are doing all sorts of things using our mobile devices checking on our fantasy football teams and now we can register to vote using these same devices,” Gavin said.

According to Gavin, cellular devices are one step to getting people to the polls on election day. Voter registration ends October 4 at midnight for new voters.  Existing voters also have until that deadline to update their profile information if needed.
