"Push to Expand Voter Rolls and Early Balloting in U.S."
The NY Times offers this front-page report, which begins: "Many of the states that allowed early voting this year experienced few delays on Election Day, and now federal election officials, lawmakers and voting experts say people in every state should have the same privilege. There is also increasing support for broadly expanding voter registration rolls, possibly by having the federal government require the states to make registration automatic for all eligible voters. Supporters say universal registration could reduce registration fraud and the confusion at the polls that results when voters are purged from the rolls."
My piece on universal voter registration referenced in the Times article is here.
