Final Report on the Impacts and Costs of Eliminating Election Day Registration in Wisconsin

The bottom line on eliminating election day voter registration.

  • It will cost the state $13 million to $14.5 million. (It is not fiscally responsible.)
  • It will subject the state to new Federal regulations and oversight. (If a person truly believes in state's rights, they would oppose eliminating same-day registration.)
  • It increases the workload and burden of local election officials, the GAB, and other service agencies including the DMV. (It increases the size and complexity of the government.)
  • The GAB passed a motion opposing eliminating same-day registration due to the wide spread and significant complications and disruptions to our currently well functioning system. (Bad for taxpayers. Bad for voters. Bad for efficient government.)
