Maryland: Bill that allows automatic voter registration becomes law without Gov. Hogan’s signature – The Washington Post

Maryland joins the District and 11 other states, including Oregon and California, that allow people to register while renewing a driver’s license, signing up for health coverage with the state Health Benefit Exchange or receiving help from a social service agency. “It’s a great step forward and will have tremendous impact for generations to come,” said state Sen. William Smith (D-Montgomery), the bill sponsor. “This will allow thousands of more Marylanders to participate in the democratic process.”Full Article: Maryland bill that allows automatic voter registration becomes law without Gov.
