wademh: I'm all for making voter registration easy but via facebook? That's more like an illiteracy test.


This.

Since voting requires one to be of-age to do so, and facebook allows one to lie about their age, this would require that facebook have access to your personal information , such as ssn, to verify that you are a valid voter.

Considering they aren't even trustworthy enough to not track which sites you access via the "like this" feature and your browser cookies, it would be unthinkable to grant them access to anything as important as legal documentation relating to your person.

Let's just be clear here:

Registration =/= Voting

every year in every state thousands of registrations are thrown out. Just because you register Micky Mouse to vote doesn't mean that cartoon character gets to walk into the voting boot. Walt Disney Corporation doesn't need him too any way. They are rich and what they have is better than a vote: money.

Was this snark? The state already allows on-line registration. All this is is another way to get the word out. Facebook, in this case, is nothing more than TV/Radio/email.

I hate Facebook as much as the other basement dwellers here, but I don't see much difference between this and states that offer online registration.

Because filling out a form and mailing it in can't ever be abused either *rolls eyes*
