CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Residents in Churchill County can now register to vote or make changes to their voter registration online.
Churchill County becomes the second county in Nevada where online registration is available. The program was implemented in Clark County two years ago.
The program requires new registrants to have a Nevada-issued driver's license or other state-issued ID number. The system then matches the new voter's ID number and physical address with information in Department of Motor Vehicle and county data banks to verify their identify.
Secretary of State Ross Miller says his office is working with all other Nevada counties to launch online voter registration before the November general election.
The online system is federally funded by the Help America Vote Act.
