Iowa Voters: Case Against Same-Day Registration

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Voters
The bill to permit voter registration on election day passed the House state government committee yesterday 12-8, but not before opponents argued the case against it. I heard two arguments against the bill on radio news coverage. Neither one said there would be chaos in the polling place or that auditors couldn't handle the change due to administrative constraints. So why oppose the bill? Opponents pointed at undesirable voters. ... The case for a law much like Minnesota and Wisconsin already have is too strong for the silliness I heard coming from opponents yesterday.
