On Oct. 30, the editorial board of the Carroll County Times recommended that citizens vote "No" on Question 2, regarding same-day registration on Election Day. The main reasons given for this position is that it might present "more headaches" for judges on Election Day, or frustrate those who already registered, and that there are other opportunities to register. That reasoning holds no water. Election Day registration happens all across this county, and right here in Maryland during early voting. We already have systems and procedures in place to enable same-day registration, and it would be only a matter of applying those same systems on Election Day. During early voting with same day registration, and even with record turn out, wait times were still low. The Board of Elections has worked hard to anticipate demand and staff polling places accordingly, and there is no reason to believe that they couldn't handle it just as ably on Election Day.
