“Barry C. Burden: Same-day registration could save the day”

Wisconsin State Journal oped:

The national attention on election security shows that sometimes the solution to a complex problem is not high-tech or even new.

A “playbook” recently released by a bipartisan team of experts at Harvard recommends securing U.S. elections using sophisticated solutions such as beefing up login credentials, but also analog solutions such as maintaining a paper trail for every ballot. This smart advice is increasingly being followed by election officials around the country. States including Wisconsin also are using new federal funds to enhance security in the lead up to the 2018 general election.

But it turns out an old practice — Election Day voter registration — also could save the day, even if voter registration databases are compromised.
