Universal Voter Registration
Should there be a national mandate with ways to automatically register voters using drivers’ licenses, welfare rolls, and pre-registering high school students to vote?
January 4, 2010

Here are links to some stories about the concept of Universal Voter Registration, which you may or may not have heard of yet as another national push topic.

Here are highlights of the concept:
• Establishing a national mandate for universal voter registration within each state.
• Providing federal funds for states taking steps toward universal voter registration.
• Requiring "permanent voter registration" systems, so that once voters are registered, they will stay on the rolls when they move.
• Requiring fail-safe procedures, so that eligible voters whose names do not appear on the voter rolls or whose information is not up to date can correct the rolls and vote on the same day.

A search engine search will provide many more articles on the pros and cons on this topic.
