The registration application was developed by the state of Washington, Facebook and Microsoft

The state of Washington will be the first to offer a voter registration option on Facebook as soon as next week.
 
Washington state citizens will soon have the option to register to vote on Facebook via an application on the Secretary of State's Facebook page. The application was developed by the state of Washington, Facebook and Microsoft. 
 
"In this age of social media and more people going online for services, this is a natural way to introduce people to online registration and leverage the power of friends on Facebook to get more people registered," said Shane Hamlin, co-director of elections. 
 
Here's how it works: Washington residents go to the secretary of state's Facebook page and click on the registration application. They will agree to let Facebook access their information, and their name and date of birth will be added automatically to their registration form. Then, residents will have to provide a driver's license or state ID number. 
 
In addition to registering to vote, Washington state citizens can obtain information on candidates to help them make voting-related decisions. 
 
"We are excited that citizens in Washington state will be able to register to vote and review useful voting information on Facebook," said Andrew Noyes, Facebook spokesman. 
 
For those worried about Facebook accessing private information for the voter registration form, it's been noted that Facebook doesn't have access to the state's database. The only information Facebook uses is your name and date of birth. 
 
The Washington state voter registration form on Facebook is expected to launch next week.

Fox News talks about the issues that liberal media outlets ignore - but that doesn't the issues they bring up a fabrication. Most media outlets are controlled by the same people who are funding Obama's expensive campaign and desperately trying to keep him in power so they can solidify their agenda.


Fox News is controlled by Republicans. I wonder what their agenda is... Pot meet kettle? One of these days someone will insist that the media separate Entertainment from News into separate channels so media can be obliged to be objective. I'd watch that news channel - because it would be real news without the slanted, obviously tilted commentary, that makes Fox News so disgustingly perverted.

Exactly what "Republicans" control Fox News again? Got any names?

Fox News doesn't have an "agenda" aside from making profits. Their ratings indicate, by far, the people feel they are the most informative and least biased news source. And that makes them the most profitable. Sorry this simple logic offends you.

Fox News has shows scheduled at 2am that get more viewership than prime time MSNBC shows. Why? Because that network is Liberal propaganda and only panders to the Left. Fox News could not get the ratings they do if they were "Republican controlled" propaganda.

And "disgustingly perverted"? LMAO, are you just throwing any words out you can think of?

That's the talent. Talent doesn't "run" news networks. Murdoch's party affiliations don't matter because if you believe a gillionair mogul is sitting there playing program director at Fox News, you're nuts.

And who do you think you're talking to? You can't just come in here, some nobody, register and then immediately go head to head with THE Reclaimer.

Best thing you can do is unregister. 1, I've never lost an argument and 2. the last thing we need is ANOTHER liberal idiot on here.

You have to love how they feel the need to register under a new alias to start snapping and snarling and hurling insults (like the new alias name) instead of intellectually and honestly debating. It means you already won.

Are you f'ing kidding? It is a documented fact that Rupert Murdoch leverages his control of media to influence elections and government affairs both in the US and in the UK. This is common knowledge. If you're ignorant of that fact then you are willfully so. FFS the man isn't even discreet about it. And he doesn't have to be, because most people, like you, won't ever give thought as to his motivations. Most people watching Fox News probably couldn't even tell you who owned the network if asked.

Good one. Keep telling yourself that and maybe you'll start to believe it. I'm not sure I've ever read a more ironic and untrue statement in my life.

Rupert Murdoch, like anyone living in the USA and UK, is allowed to voice his opinions on current events. It just so happens that people pay more attention to a guy like Murdoch than they do some schmuck camping out on Wall St complaining about income inequities.

Does that count as political influence? Maybe...but at least he's playing by the rules.

How are commiecrats staying in power? They are relying on decidedly illegal methods:

- Voter fraud

- Selective non-enforcement of Federal laws to bolster voting pool (aka not deporting illegals and allowing them to vote).

- Allowing people who are not legally authorized to vote to cast ballots.

- Endorsement of welfare programs that do not encourage self-reliance, and then implying that if the people do not keep them in power they will lose their livelihood (welfare checks).

They also tell blatant lies, which is not necessarily illegal but should be considered fraud. For example, Obama was really going at Romney with the Bain Capital angle when at the very same time he is accepting donations from employees and executives at Bain.

He makes it seem like Bain outsourced everything and is the only US company doing that, but does not mention the fact that Bain Capital helped many well-known American companies stay in business and not become more victims of the obamaconomy.

So yeah, if you want to rag on Murdoch for legally being vocal about his views and using is own money and property to make his views known, I guess you are right...but at least he's not paying people to vote.

If you want to say, who controls....that would be Roger Ailes. Yes he is Republican, but so what. He's also a former NBC executive...o'my. MSNBC use to be controlled by the Republicans! At least until Ailes left....<sigh>

If by disgustingly perverted you mean relatively unbiased and accurate, then it looks like we're in agreement.

Commiecrats/Libtards don't actually know what they're talking about and as a group, could never have made a country as great as America in the first place. Ask them to defend any of their idiotic views and they'll IMMEDIATELY try to deflect or change the topic - anything to avoid having to justify their position. It's like you idiots think that just because you can have an opinion and not become a political prisoner (yet) that you should have the most asinine opinion possible even if there is no logic or reason behind it...as long as it sounds nice.

You HAVE TO be that way to support someone as obviously incompetent as Obama. Do I like Romney? No, not really...if I had my pick for the next president it would have been Ron Paul and the reason is simple - he wants to reduce the size and scope of the government and that's exactly what needs to be done to get the USA back on track. Romney is still a far better option that Obama simply because he has experience and a track record of GETTING THINGS DONE, especially when it comes to business.

Most of the big media outlets are dripping with left wing propaganda, and they know that most lefties are idiots who will not question what is said so long as it has that sweet berry flavor they know and love. OOOOOOOO YEAH!
