MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The president of a group representing municipal clerks and the head of the Wisconsin chapter of the League of Women Voters say allowing voters to register at the polls on election day has served the state well and should not be eliminated.
They and others spoke about the issue at a Tuesday meeting of the Government Accountability Board, which oversees elections in Wisconsin.
Wisconsin Municipal Clerks Association president Vikki Zuehlke says the association has signed a resolution opposing the elimination of election day registration, in part over concerns of the $5.2 million cost outlined in a GAB report.
League of Women Voters of Wisconsin executive director Andrea Kaminski says there is no evidence that same-day registration has caused significant problems.
