Now you can register as a voter via Facebook. Who knows, later you might be able to get married on Facebook

The State of Washington says that early next week it will become the first state in the nation to offer voter registration via Facebook.

In 2008, the Pacific Northwest state became just the second in the union to offer online registration. This week, a new Facebook app created by Microsoft (a Washington company, naturally) will provide a new interface to let voters access the MyVote system.

Today, Washington and 12 other states, including Utah, California, counties in Nevada, Connecticut, Indiana, and others offer online voter registration.
