Hoosiers can register to vote using cell phones


Indianapolis - Indiana has a new high-tech way residents can register to vote for the Nov. 2 elections - using Internet-capable mobile phones.

The state has offered voter registration online since July and announced the online service for cell phones on Sept. 21. Residents have to have a valid Indiana driver's license or state-issued ID to use either registration service.

The mobile phone service allows new voters to register. Existing voters can update their registration information.

The registration deadline for the Nov. 2 general election is Oct. 4.
