Fighting for Same Day Registration

It's no coincidence that two of the states with the strongest voter turnout - Wisconsin and Minnesota - have used same day registration since the 1970s. States working to modernize elections and boost voter participation enact same day registration because it has an immediate, measurable effect in expanding access to the vote. Although same day registration has helped hundreds of thousands of Americans register and vote more easily, small groups within state governments are trying to block or dismantle same day registration.
