This bill amends Oregon Constitution providing for same-day voter registration.
Personal Choice and Responsibility
We are blessed with the privilege of voting, but we also must accept responsibility for that privilege. Elections don’t pop up out of the blue and surprise us. If we are a responsible voter, we study the ballot ahead of time, and we also need to know that we need to register to vote with proper identification.
Currently, you must register 21 days in advance. Clerks accept any form of verification including a self-written note if no required form of verification is available. Sloppy registration rules is an open door to fraud.
