Indiana officials cite Facebook as source of uptick in voter registration

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana officials say the state's voter registration has gotten a huge boost from Facebook.

Secretary of State Connie Lawson says 30,000 residents have registered to vote online since Friday, with roughly 21,000 registering on that day alone.

She credits the uptick to Facebook's post reminding people to register. Once you click on the post, you're redirected to the state's registration website.

Oct. 11 is the deadline to register to vote in the November election.
