Rhode Island just became the ninth state to automatically register and re-register residents when they obtain or renew a driver's license, unless they opt out. Their stated purpose is to create cleaner voter records and mitigate concerns of voter fraud. In the NYS legislature most Democrats want automatic voter registration to make voting as seamless and easy as possible. Those against, such as NYS Senate Republicans, feel the current system works just fine. Should NYS automatically register residents to vote when they obtain or renew a driver's license?
