What is the best digital state?

Monday, December 15th, 2008

The 2008 Digital State Survey, which is conducted every two years by the Center for Digital Government, ranks Utah at the top of states delivering government services electronically. As a Utah resident, you can go online to, for instance, renew your drivers’ license, purchase fishing and hunting licenses, order birth, marriage, divorce and death certificates, submit an adoption or foster parent application, or renew your business registration. Rounding out the top five digital states are Michigan, Virginia, Arizona and California.

The survey also found that “[m]ore than a quarter of states created wikis for sharing collaborative information. Ninety percent of states use really simple syndication (RSS) feeds to broadcast information to interested users and 72 percent use podcasts within executive branch agencies. Half of the states use text messaging, 46 percent use mash-ups and 44 percent use blogs.”
