John Deeth Blog: Harkin backs federal Election Day registration

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Senator Tom Harkin has joined other senators from states with election
day voter registration is backing a bill that would extend same-day
registration to all states. But the delegation from Iowa, the newest
same-day registration state, is not united, with Rep. Steve King
voicing his opposition. Harkin is cosponsoring Senate bill 2959, first
offered by Senators Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Russ Feingold of
Wisconsin. Senator Jon Tester of Montana has also co-sponsored the
bill. All four co-sponsors are Democrats from states with election day
voter registration. The issue has a long partisan history.
