What could possible go wrong here?
If you live in Washington state a new way to register to vote will soon by available. A Facebook app will reside on the Secretary of state’s page that will exist directly within Facebook. The APreports that the app will be the results of collective efforts of Facebook, Microsoft and the state.
Washington will be the first state to offer voter registrations on Facebook. Users will have to click on the app and allow Facebook to access their information and will be required to also provide an ID card or drivers licence. The app will not have access to the state records, rather will overlay to simply add to the database. A “My Vote” site will also existe to help inform registrants about candidates and the issues.
I’m sure AG Eric Holder will sue Washington State & Facebook since ID is required. After all, he’s sued South Carolina and Texas over voter ID laws on the grounds it disenfranchises minorities.
