The Utah Lieutenant Governor's office has been recognized by a national technology group for its online voter registration program.
"Voter registration is one of the most beneficial services the State of Utah can offer online," said Gov. Gary Herbert. "It makes political participation easier and saves the taxpayer dollars."
Utah launched its online voter registration program last year, allowing citizens to register online to vote, or update their address or party affiliation. So far, 18,000 voters have used the site, according to the lieutenant governor's office.
