Washington State is to become the first in the US to allow voter registration via a Facebook application.

State officials said the application, which could be available next week, was a "natural way" to sign up voters.

Facebook would not collect details other than the voter's name and date of birth, and would not have access to the voter database.

The move comes as several states have introduced or passed laws requiring more evidence to register or vote.
