“Judge’s ruling reduces Election Day registration in Illinois”


A federal judge has scaled back Election Day voter registration for highly populated areas in Illinois, a decision that sides Republicans who claimed in a lawsuit that last year’s extension of same-day registration is unconstitutional.

Judge Samuel Der-Yeghiayan’s (dehr-YAY’-gehnz) move on Tuesday temporarily blocks wider same-day registration lawmakers put into effect in 2015.

Voters will still be able to register on Nov. 8, just not at individual polling places.
