Pennsylvania is adopting an automatic voter registration system for anyone who obtains a driver’s license or other state identification card, state Gov. Josh Shapiro (D) announced on Tuesday.

Pennsylvanians can still choose not to register when they are obtaining ― or renewing ― their IDs, but they will have to proactively opt out of the process to do so.

Shapiro had the power to make the change without passing a new law.

“Pennsylvania is the birthplace of our democracy, and as Governor, I’m committed to ensuring free and fair elections that allow every eligible voter to make their voice heard,” Shapiro said in a statement. “Automatic voter registration is a commonsense step to ensure election security and save Pennsylvanians time and tax dollars.”

Pennsylvania is the 24th state to adopt automatic voter registration.
