HB79 – Automatic Voter Registration!

Rep. David Bentz’s HB79 would turn Delaware’s existing Motor Voter Program into an automatic voter registration system. Currently, when Delawareans apply for, renew, or replace a driver’s license or identification card, they must choose to register to vote, update an existing registration, or decline registration. This bill would require eligible voters to instead “opt out” of having their information automatically shared with the Delaware Department of Elections for registration.

Notice how there are no Republicans among the sponsors.  They really oppose voting and making voting easier.

  1. Love it, it’s a good idea. As for the Republicans in Delaware there just as anti voter and anti democracy as the party as a whole.

  2. Yes, this is an excellent idea from Rep. Bentz! We know that the GOP doesn’t want anyone to vote except their voters, but this is just good government.
