Maggie Bush, the Program and Outreach Director from the League of Women Voters talks to the Union Edge about National Voter Registration Day, which is coming up on September 26.
The League supports automatic voter registration. In Massachusetts, League Executive Director Meryl Kessler calls it, “the next logical step in the modernization of the electoral process”.
"It is safe to say that we have never registered this many people, so early in the year, during a non-presidential election year."
Voter ID laws can make it difficult for homeless people to vote. In Wisconsin, the League is working to help homeless voters exercise their rights.
