Seriously, why not allow folks to register on same day they vote? Why not give folks a day off, so they don’t have to wait in pre-9am lines or post 5pm lines? At least things are getting easier—whatever George F. Will thinks.

    Thats funny! I think its awesome that at least four of the states allow you to register on election day. I do think however that this could lead to greater voting fraud as it would not give enough time for proper voter verification. Bigger voter registration drives and more public education about voting is a possible tactic to get the maximum amount of voters to the polls on election day, though it could never ensure that reality.
