(KMVT/KSVT) - Registering to vote online has made its way to Idaho.

The portal was launched this month after a bill passed last year made way for the project to begin in July.

Secretary of State Lawrence Denney pushed to offer this option since he started office.

"When I first took office, I had a significant list of things that I wanted to get done, and it seemed that everything had an IT or technological component to it. We found some limiting factors in our existing technology and immediately set out a process to remove those limitations," Denney explained.

With the new system, the secretary's office redesigned the logo and website.

"This (online registration) will save people from doing this when they get to their polling place on election day," said Kristina Glascock, Twin Falls County Clerk of the District Court. "It will help us with the lines on Election Day that you have to fill out a new card when you get to your polling place."

The ease of the voter registration will allow you to not only register, but also update your information if you moved. You just need your driver's license or state issued ID.
