Voter Turnout Remains a Challenge—and an Opportunity

In his latest editorial for The Boston Sun, Ward 4 Chair Jonathan Cohn makes the case for Election Day Registration. This is an opportune moment for reform, given that current election laws are actually designed to prevent transient students and renter populations from voting. Cohn writes that “we have an arbitrary and unnecessary 20-day voter registration cutoff. If you wanted to vote in the primary, you had to have registered by February 12. But those final twenty days before an election are, indeed, when campaigning and media coverage are at their height—and when people are most likely to know an election is even happening.”
