ST. PAUL -- The Legislature should decide if online voter registration is allowed in Minnesota, the governor said Tuesday.

Gov. Mark Dayton said that he agreed with fellow Democratic Secretary of State Mark Ritchie that online voter registration is a good idea, but thinks it needs legislative approval first.

Ritchie launched online registration on his own, saying an existing law allows it. But Dayton and several legislative leaders say it should not have begun without a vote of lawmakers.
