Millions will be unable to vote? Where do they get these statistics? And if you have moved, don't you need to register again, assuming you changed towns? And there is a state law that requires you to change the address on your license when you move as well. Maybe we need to start doing the purple dye system as in Iraq.
I think both sides ran ads that were BS. The busy working person wasn't going to be able to vote? Really? They found time to register their car during the year. I would prefer to see something where if an election is close, same day registrations could be verified before the vote is finalized. That I think would be fair to all parties.
What I have a hard time understanding is if voting is sooooo important, why can't you get yourself to the town hall to register on one of the 240 other days of the business year? You find time to register your car once a year. You only have to register once unless you move. What is everyone so afraid of? I don't believe the fact that we have same day voter registration is the reason we have high voter turnout. What is the number of same day voters in any given election?
