So you love sharing photos of your grandkids with the rest of the world over on Facebook? Those living in Washington State might have a different use for Facebook, where you can now register to vote on the social network. In fact, Washington State has already allowed online voter registration since 2008, and with the implementation of Facebook, there is now a new way to reach potential voters.
The Facebook application is set to roll out later this week, where eligible state residents will be able to register to vote straight from their Facebook page. Specially designed by Microsoft, the app itself will place a screen from the official state website right into a user’s Facebook page, and it will automatically introduce some of the information that are already in a Facebook profile, with the name and date of birth also included. Other states that allow online voter registration include Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana and Utah. Online registration definitely makes life a whole lot more convenient, don’t you think so?
