"Ending same-day voter registration would cost $5.2 million, board finds"

Update: Walker backs down, reverses stance.

" ... ending election-day registration would cost the state $5.2 million for the first two years - $1.9 million for increased costs to maintain voter lists, $1.2 million in computer system upgrades, $1.2 million for an ad campaign and voter outreach and more than $800,000 for training and adding staff." (Marley. MJS)

Scott Walker and the Republican Party must really care about election inspectors (poll workers) to save them the trouble of helping voters vote on election day.

Wonder if election inspectors, municipal clerks and every voting rights group telling the Republicans this is a terrible idea will change Walker and the Republicans' minds.
