LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman has signed a bill into law that will allow voters to register and update their registrations online.

Heineman made the announcement on Monday along with the state’s top elections official, Nebraska Secretary of State John Gale.

Nebraska will join 17 other states that have allowed voters to register online. Supporters say the bill will improve the accuracy of the state’s voter registration database. The system is expected to be finished by 2017.

The new online system will link voter registrations to signatures provided to the Department of Motor Vehicles for driver’s licenses or state identification cards.

The bill was introduced by Sen. Bob Krist, of Omaha.
