EAC Commissioner Christy McCormick Gives Presentation Arguing Against Automatic Voter Registration, Suggesting It Violates the 1st Amendment and Raises “Security Concerns” About People Registering to Vote

I understand that this presentation (backup version here) at NCSL raised some eyebrows.

In my view, there is no good First Amendment argument against automatic voter registration, because any voter can choose not to register if they desire. This is in fact a frivolous argument.

And for one of the four commissioners of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission to discourage voter registration by raising “Security Concerns” is very discouraging.
