Our corrupt Secretary of State's not happy with the old "motor voter" law and its subsequent iterations that provide opportunities for would-be voters to register to vote while at the DMV or applying for food stamps or applying for welfare or.... Nope, Kate Brown's pushing to have every holder of an Oregon drivers' license automatically registered to vote. She'd be willing to send each new licensee a letter with instructions on how to cancel their voter registration, or to affiliate with a political party, but she thinks the right to vote should be automatic.
Evidently, there's not enough election fraud going on already in this state - or not enough to suit the fiercely partisan Democrat SOS.
“Voter registration should be the responsibility of citizens, not the responsibility of state agencies,” said Sandy Raddue of Beaverton, who leads the Oregon Republican Party’s election integrity efforts.
And there's the problem, in a nutshell: hyper-partisan Democratics like Kate aren't especially keen on that whole election integrity thing. Rachel Madcow and Kate and the other Airhead America refugees figure that if people are too lazy to register on their own, they're sure to vote Democrat.
