WHAT IF THERE WERE A WAY TO MAKE IT EASY TO VOTE?
Oregon has enacted just such a plan. Voting there was already “by mail,” so no missing work or waiting in lines. Now, every adult citizen with a driver’s license (for which proof of citizenship is required) will be automatically registered to vote.
As you would expect, this was unanimously opposed by Oregon’s Republican legislators. What a bad idea: making it easy for citizens to vote.

Quote of the Day
