"Pew Study Calculates the Real Cost of Voter Registration"

The Pew Center on the States has issued this press release, which begins: "Oregon spent more than $9.7 million--or $4.51 per active registered voter--on its voter registration system during the 2008 election according to a new report released today by The Pew Center on the States. Conducted with the assistance of Oregon state and local election officials, "The Real Cost of Voter Registration" is the first comprehensive analysis of its kind and provides a model for other states to estimate their expenses and establish a basis for evaluating efforts to modernize."
