It’s election season, which means voter registration efforts are well underway. And as Rachel La Corte of the Associated Press reports, one state is test-driving an innovative new way to register more voters:
Facebook users in Washington state will have something else to brag about to their online friends: that they registered to vote on Facebook.
The secretary of state’s office said Tuesday it will have an application on its Facebook page that allows residents to register to vote and then “like” the application and recommend it to their friends. It’s expected to launch as early as next week.
