>>>>Automatic Voter Registration Resurrected At Statehouse

(Springfield, IL)  —  Lawmakers in Springfield are working on a new plan to update your voter registration when you renew your drivers license. An Illinois Senate panel yesterday approved an automatic voter registration plan. Governor Rauner vetoed a similar idea last year, he said there weren’t enough safeguards against fraud. The new version requires voter to verify that they’re eligible to vote before being entered into the automated system.
