North Carolina: House approves Election Day Registration

The Greensboro News-Record reports: North Carolinians would be able to register to vote on the same day they cast their ballot under legislation the state House tentatively approved Wednesday.

The measure only would apply to the period scheduled for early voting. Those wishing to vote on Election Day would have to register in advance. ...

Seven states have similar provisions. Turnout figures show election participation is about 10 percentage points greater there -- as high as 65 percent of eligible voters -- than in states with advance registration requirements. -- News-Record.com - Greensboro, North Carolina: News: Legislature: House tentatively backs voter registration change
