AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - The Maine Senate has joined the House in advancing a bill to allow online voter registration.

The Senate voted 22-12 on Thursday, a day after the House voted 81-61 in favor of the bill.

Both votes were along party lines with minority Republicans in opposition.

Maine law currently allows people to request an application online but the application must be returned either by mail or in person.

Further votes are required.
