Since today is (primary) election day in my state, & I know people of all political stripes, I was looking for an interesting article that would reach to everyone going to vote today & might pique their interest.
I think I found one.
This LA Times article points to an interesting model to approach voter registration.
I happen to have some friends who are Oregonians who tell me how easy & how much they love this law because it already augments the voting process already in place.
That said, I think it could be a potential model for some states.
(Though I know the main complaint is that it puts too much burden/power in the states hands).
Still if it can work here, I don’t see why it wouldn’t work other places.
Also when looking at this, it struck me as a good potential model as well for starting a similar system to increase organ donation rates as well…
I think it’s a smart model on both counts when one stops to think about it.
I hope other states will follow suit in both cases.
