Automatic Voter Registration

A couple of states that did not already have automatic voter registration are pursuing it.

The Illinois Senate just overrode the governor's veto on this (link below). So they are pretty far along in the process.

In Arkansas, a representative just introduced automatic registration late this week. Time will tell how this newer effort fares.

Both states' plans involve the driver's license application and renewal processes as well as applications/dealngs with public service agencies.

If you know of states that have automatic voter registration, please let us know how well it works. Also, if you know of other states seeking automatic registration, please update us.

Thanks!
