Running head; voters registration changes and voting rules
What changes would you make in voters registration and voting rules?
Voter registration is a need that an individual who is entitled to participate in an election registers
on an electoral register before being allowed to participate in an election (Secretary of State
North Dakota, 2010). In United State (U.S) voter registration is a requirement to casting your
vote at national, local and state elections. Voter registration in U.S takes place at the county level
(The Voter's Self Defense System, 2016).
Changes that can be made in voter registration and voting rules include making registration
automatic, voter registration system in U.S is based on registration via voluntary, individual plan.
This makes it very hard for U.S people to be eligible to participate in an election ( Ruy A.
Teixeira, 1992). Implementation of Automatic Voter Registration (AVR) is very critical because,
(AVR) reinforces democracy by broadening and expanding the body of voters. It also saves
nations and regions cost, make the registration lists of the voters more precise and enhances the
voting system security (Rob Griffin, 2017).
Allowing voters to register during Election Day can also improve voter registration. It doesn’t
only eliminate obstacles such as arbitrarily registration cut-off dates but it also allows citizens
who have moved to take other documents with them indicating their home place to the selected
voting place in order to renew their voter registration. This can as well increase the number of
voters in an election (Demos and Project Vote, 2015).
Online voter registration also makes the voter registration procedure convenient and mostly for
youths. It reduces the hassle of finding where to enroll and securing time off job. It’s also useful
for qualified voters who are very transient as well as those with nonflexible schedules.
