Pennsylvania to start automatic voter registration

Pennsylvania introduces automatic voter registration for 2024 elections, announced by Gov. Josh Shapiro. Eligible voters will be automatically registered during new or renewed ID and driver’s license processes, replacing the previous opt-in system. Opt-out option available. Pennsylvania is the 24th state to adopt this system, used by both Democratic and Republican-led states. Shapiro’s office anticipates a significant increase in registered voters. Shapiro supports the move as a commonsense step for election security and efficiency. Pennsylvania’s role as a swing state in presidential elections underlines the importance of this change. Automatic voter registration could boost voter turnout in closely contested states like Pennsylvania.
