A measure that would allow people to register and immediately vote at one-stop sites up to three days before an election is making its way through the Senate. Supporters say the bill, House Bill 91, would encourage more people to vote. Existing law requires registration 25 days before an election. State elections officials say the program could be easily implemented and would be more secure because voters would register in person rather than by mail or on line. The measure now goes to the full Senate.
