Oppose SB123: Same Day Register and Vote on Election Day HEARING: Wed. Feb 20, 4:00pm, Senate Legislative Operations & Elections Committee, Rm 2144, Video conferenced to Rm 4412 of the Grant Sawyer Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV.
MESSAGE: Oppose SB123 Citizens have many opportunities all year long including at the DMV to register to vote. They should take some responsibility for registering to vote. Registering to Vote on Election Day puts our election system at risk for fraud. (or write your own message)
Background: This bill allows people to register to vote on Election Day, for all elections including Primaries. To register to vote they must appear at one or more sites designated by the county or city clerk to register to vote, complete an application to register to vote and provide proof of identity and residence. The voter may vote only at the polling place where he registered to vote. Nevada’s law now allows people to register to vote 1) by mail by the fourth Tuesday before the election (that’s one week) 2) by appearing in person by at the office of the county or city clerk by the third Tuesday preceding an election (that’s two weeks), now we have automatic voter registration when you go to the DMV and you can register to vote online. Are people so irresponsible that they find it impossible to register to vote in advance?
The Problem with Same Day Voter Registration (Fraud): https://www.americanmajority.org/vote-fraud/the-problem-with-same-day-voter-registration/“Same-day Voter Registration requires the voter to complete the application and provide “proof of residence” documentation. Ballots for same-day registrants are counted in that election but the actual registration is not verified until AFTER Election Day…For example, in the 2008 election, 62,000 voters registered on Election Day ALONE in the City of Milwaukee. How many of those registrations were actually legitimate? But all of their votes were counted in the election.” Does anyone find it odd that 62,000 had forgone any other option for registering and decided to wait until Election Day?
