From the Daily News:
Registering to vote is now as easy as making a few clicks on a mouse.
People with a valid driver’s license or state-issued non-driver’s ID can use the website of the state Department of Motor Vehicles to register to vote or to update their current registration, Gov. Cuomo announced Thursday.
“It is going to make it much easier for voters to register, and that is always a good thing,” said Mylan Denerstein, Cuomo’s counsel.
State officials also announced plans to place electronic voter registration terminals in all local DMV offices.
Denerstein said the initiative would boost New York's sagging voter enrollment numbers and also save taxpayers money by streamlining the DMV’s handling of voter registrations.
The state ranks 47th in the nation in voter registration, with less than 64% of eligible residents registered, according to Cuomo administration officials.
