Voter registration deadlines are unnecessary barriers to the polls and disproportionately keep marginalized communities from voting. Virginia is the second-hardest state in the nation to cast a ballot, partly because of useless restrictions like registration deadlines.
Virginia should join the 19 other states with same-day voter registration. Other states have seen a 7-10 percent increase in voter turnout after allowing same-day registration. We are needlessly keeping hundreds of thousands of Virginians from the ballot box. It's time to drop this restriction.
