Judge Denies Appeal On Ruling Of Election Day Voter Registration Law
A federal judge isn't backing down on his decision to block the Illinois Election Day voter registration law. The ruling handed down earlier this week declared the policy unconstitutional. The law had required counties with populations of 100-thousand or more to offer Election Day registration at all polling places. Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan plans to take the case to federal appeals court after her initial appeal to reverse the judge's decision was denied yesterday.
