Obviously, the problem with voting is too many voters

I'm just an old guy, but I remember when high voter turn out was something that a state was proud of.
In 2008, Wisconsin enjoyed the second highest turnout of any state in the nation (72.4 percent of eligible voters cast a ballot), due largely to the fact the Badger State law allows residents who aren’t registered or have recently moved to register at the polls.
The figures will probably be similar in 2012. But something terrible seems to happen when there is high participation in a democracy...apparently too many people vote and people ruin it for everyone else...hurting Republicans.
Gov. Scott Walker (R) announced one of his major policy proposals for the upcoming session: ending the state’s 40-year old law that allows citizens to register to vote on Election Day.
You'd think Walker would want large voter rolls, because he might need the biggest jury pool he can get.
Gov. Scott Walker and his top campaign and Milwaukee County aides were implicated Monday in a scheme in which they routinely commingled political and official county business. The disclosures came during the sentencing of a former aide to Walker during his last year as Milwaukee County executive.

Ha!

Here's your answer:

“I don’t want everybody to vote. As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections, quite candidly, goes up as the voting populace goes down.” - The late and still despicable conservative Republican, Paul Weyrich

Like most college students in Madison I tended to relocate on August 14th/15th (anyone not familiar can google moving day Madison). Being able to register on Election Day at my polling location was far more convenient than trying to get to either DMV office or the City Clerk. It was also easy: you filled out a form and cast your ballot. A postcard was sent to the address on the form for verification.

The only people engaged in any kind of voter fraud are the Republicans themselves.
