7. What we should have is same-day registration nation-wide.

That's how most civilized nations do it. If you're not registered to vote on election day, you show up at the polling place, they have you fill out a form with an affadavit affirming you're a citizen eligible to vote, hand it it, and you get your ballot.

Other nations also do radical things like letting prisoners vote in prison, letting non-citizens vote (yes, in some nations, it's not only not a crime for a foreigner to vote, but it's actively encouraged.)
