Statement From David Orr Regarding Election Day Registration Ruling

Chicago, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Cook County Clerk David Orr released the following statement regarding the Election Day ruling issued today that impacts Illinois:

I am extremely disappointed that a US District Judge granted a preliminary injunction prohibiting Election Day Registration in precincts. This lawsuit was a thinly-veiled partisan effort by the right-wing Illinois Policy Institute to disenfranchise voters.

Election Day Registration works, and it works well. 110,000 voters throughout Illinois took advantage of EDR in the March Primary—voters who otherwise would have been unable to cast a ballot.  EDR has been the law in Illinois since . . .
