Gov. Mark Dayton has signed a bill preserving an online voter registration system overseen by Minnesota's secretary of state.
    
State lawmakers quickly approved the bill and sent it to the Democratic governor before a court order kicks in.
    
On Monday, a Ramsey County judge ruled Secretary of State Mark Ritchie had overstepped his bounds by establishing the virtual sign-up unilaterally last fall. The judge ordered that the system be shut down by midnight Tuesday, absent legislative intervention.
    
The bill takes effect Wednesday.
