Submission + - Washington State offers voter registration via Facebook

QQBoss writes: Given that Washington state already performs elections by mail and has offered voter registration online since 2008, is offering voter registration via Facebook the next logical step? Or is it an enhanced way of enabling voter fraud? Since it requires entering a drivers license number to validate the registration, if a state subject to preclearence implemented this would it fall afoul of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 according to Eric Holder? Will it be enough to prevent dead dogs and Mickey Mouse from being enabled to register to vote?
So many pins to pull, let the grenades fly!
