There’s an article out by the AP in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. (Sorry if it’s behind the paywall when you click.)
Here’s how it starts:
State election records show that voters in Wisconsin’s Democratic-leaning counties have been more likely to register to vote at the polls
But then it goes on to say Republicans, dog gone it, use same day voting registration, too. Imagine that.
The link inside that MJS article isn’t working, but you can use this one for maps and more information. From that Wisconsin State Journal article:
Nearly two-thirds of election day registrations were in counties where a majority voted for Democratic candidates in the three elections.
That’s the quick version of why Democrats in Wisconsin are not at all excited about ending same-day registration.
There’s a whole lot more to say about the subject, but it will wait until after the first of the year. I did want to pop the article links up, though, so they didn’t get lost on my messy digital desk.
Ho ho ho! One week to go.
