Wis. OKs electronic docs for voter registration : Madisondotcom

Wisconsin residents may present electronic documents as part of the voter registration process, state elections officials decided Tuesday. Under Wisconsin law, voters who register by mail or on Election Day must provide a document at the polls showing proof of residency, such as a utility bill, a tax bill, paycheck or bank statement. The state Government Accountability Board, which oversees state elections, had required those voters to show paper copies of their documents. The AFL-CIO, the liberal-leaning Institute for One Wisconsin and Wisconsin Election Protection, a group affiliated with the American Civil Liberties Union, asked the board to allow voters to print out electronic documents or show poll workers documents on a laptop or smartphone.
