Illinoisans will soon be able to register to vote online, under a new law signed over the weekend by Governor Pat Quinn.
Supporters say the system will make it easier for more people to sign up and exercise their right to vote.
And they insist the online registration will be both secure and far less expensive than paper registration.
But the system is not in place yet.
Under the legislation signed by Quinn, the state must have online registration up and running by next July.
