A record 150,000 new voters were added to the rolls last month, Los Angeles County elections officials said Wednesday.

Officials attributed much of the increase to California’s new online voter registration system.


‘Online voters registration is fast, convenient and secure,’ county Registrar-Recorder Dean Logan said in a statement. ‘In a short time we have seen the impact of this expanded access.’

Loan said there are about 3 million county residents who are eligible to vote but are not registered. They have until Oct. 22 to do so in order to participate in the Nov. 6 election.
