Those who work in the Registrar of Voters Office for Washoe County are fans of their new online registration program.
"It's so easy for people to use and it's accessible any time of the day or night. And we're already seeing people use it and we haven't done any actual advertising yet," said Luanne Cutler with the Registrar's Office.
Cutler says she's seen 63 registrations in the week and a half that the program has been up and running. And she expects to see that number inch up as we get closer to the election.
"We're are still seeing hand registrations brought in by groups by the hundreds, but we do expect as people realize this is here they'll take advantage of not having to be filling out paperwork in person," she said.
You can use the website to register or to change an address or even your party affiliation. And you know who's logging on? University of Nevada students.
"I do everything online, so if that's available of course it's easier," said Bethany Morrill, a student at UNR.
"I'm not registered and I didn't even know that I could register online. But if I can do that without event going in to the office I'm sure I will," said another UNR student, Donovan Brill.
The program was federally funded and Cutler expects it will save money and time for staff in the long run. Be advised you do need a Nevada ID number or a driver's license and your Social Security number to use the website. In person just one piece of ID and your Social Security number will do.
So far 10 out of 17 of Nevada's counties are up and running. They are all expected to be usable by September in plenty of time for the October 7th deadline for registration to vote in the general election.
