A group of State Senators say they will work on passing an automatic voter registration law during the spring legislative session. The measure would sign Illinoisans up to vote automatically whenever they apply for, renew or update their driver’s license or State ID. State Senator Andy Manar is one of the bill sponsors. He says it will save state and local government money and increase turnout on Election Day.
Manar says two other states, Oregon and California, are starting to implement automatic voter registration.
