Skip to comments.Same-day voter registration coming to Illinois: Change will apply only to Nov. 4 election

Sweeping Illinois election law changes likely to be in place this fall mean it'll be easier to register, vote while away at college and cast an early ballot.
Democrats say the relaxed rules will allow more people to exercise a basic democratic right, but Republicans are leery the moves are aimed at pumping up the Democratic vote in what has been a decidedly blue state.
The changes are part of a measure lawmakers approved this spring that Gov. Pat Quinn plans to sign into law this summer. The biggest one will allow same-day registration for the first time, meaning Illinois voters could register to vote and cast a ballot on Election Day.
The legislation also would expand the number of days and extend the hours for early voting. And it would remove the provision that people taking part in early voting show a photo ID, such as a driver's license.
In addition, students attending Illinois public universities could shift their residences from their hometowns to their school-based living quarters and vote on Election Day at select on-campus locations.
The changes, however, would only apply to the Nov. 4 election. That has some Republicans questioning whether easing the voting rules simply is a way to bolster Democratic prospects this fall.

The contract to print the provisional ballots will be HUGE
It’s much safer to litigate fraud after you’ve won the election...
I think I’ll apply to an Illinois university from Texas, get accepted, and use that foot-in-the-door to vote there.
Anyone who thinks democrats aren’t going to cheat big time in November is fooling themselves.
They will retain the Senate by fraud. It will be obvious that they cheated, but unless the fraud is called out and punished, there will be no more fair elections in this country ever again.
Time for Conservative to join the game.
Plan ahead, get your fake id, get mail sent to your house using your alias.
Vote early and vote often.
WIN ANY WAY YOU CAN.........
Motor Voter, Same day registration, has one goal....Fraud.
If it has anything to do with Illinois and voting, it has to be crooked and illegal.
This same day registration is used as an excuse to keep the polls open to 10:00 pm or later.
