Why states are moving to automatic voter registration, and how it could be improved
When a baby is born in the US the parents can easily request a Social Security number for the child and most parents do this. Each state records births. These infants are US citizens, not other proof required. Why can't this information be used to automatically register a child to vote on their 18th birthday? Obviously, the system would have to verify a local address so the person is registered to vote in the proper location but computers can actually be programmed to do remarkable things.
