No Way to Encourage Voting!

May 5, 2014


I continue to be amazed by some of our legislators. Why any of them would think that same-day voter registration is a good idea is beyond me. The poten­tial for fraud is obvious. Same-day registration does not give our Department of Elections time to verify eligibility.

Voting is a serious business. It’s not as if the presi­dent wakes up one day and says, “Tomorrow we vote,” and it takes us all by surprise! We know that in early November, every two years, we vote. It is not news. There are TV ads, radio ads and signs covering our roadsides that make it impossible to ignore.

In two years (730 days), if you have made time to get a haircut, go to the grocery store, visit friends, go to church, take in a movie, go out to eat, go to the library or just take a walk, then why can’t you find time to register to vote? It’s not rocket science. If you need help, call the Department of Elections, ask a friend, a minister, look on the Internet or call the political party headquarters of your choice. And, by the way, the same applies to voter IDs. And if you can’t manage any of these things, then perhaps you shouldn’t be voting. If you don’t care enough to put aside the time, which is only minutes, then it can’t be that important to you.

In this age of instant gratification, same-day voter registration is the wrong incentive.
