Online Voter Registration Registration Drive Geared to Young

The first online voter registration effort has been launched by MCI and Rock The Vote. Users access the site at either of the two locations, the MCI Net Vote’96 site or the Rock The Vote site, then fill out an on-screen registration form and hit “submit.” One week before the elections the new voters will be reminded to go to the polls. The project is directed at the country’s 25 million 18-to-24 -year-olds, 58 percent of whom are not registered to vote. The Congressional Internet Caucus and Sheryl Crow have endorsed the effort and they are convinced that by making the process easy and via a medium which is very popular for the young age group, there will be a high success rate.
