Eliminating Same-Day Registration to be Discussed in WI

Wisconsin election officials are scheduled to talk about the ramifications of eliminating same-day voter registration, a move supported by Gov. Scott Walker and other Republicans.
Walker has long been for not allowing voters to register at the polls on election day. But his support weakened in the face of the Government Accountability Board report that put the price tag on eliminating same-day registration at more than $5 million.
Walker says he would not sign a bill that costs that much money.
The board was to discuss that report at its Tuesday meeting.
It was also scheduled to discuss a report about the costs and complications of accessing a federal database to weed out illegal immigrants who may be voting.
