QUINN TO SIGN SAME-DAY VOTER REGISTRATION BILL

Illinois Review

OAK PARK – Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn (D) is expected to sign legislation today allowing individuals to register on Election Day, have more time to cast early ballots and no longer be required to bring photo identification to vote early.

Democrats, who control the state legislature, pushed the plan on the second-to-last day of the spring session with the idea that it will boost Democrat voter turnout in this year’s mid-term elections.

The new law only applies to the November 2014 election. Bill sponsors say they’ll extend it beyond November if things go smoothly.

Ten states currently allow same-day voter registration.

    Of course…”Vote Early and Vote Often” is the state motto. After all, Illinois has such a sterling record for political corruption. Nothing could go wrong here.
