High Court Won't Vote For Open Enrollment

posted by John Baibak - 


The State Supreme Court is  upholding the law that requires Massachusetts residents to register to  vote 20 days before an election.  

The state's highest court says the 20  day requirement does not disenfranchise voters.  

The Court ruling overturns a lower court decision that deemed the 20 day  blackout period as unconstitutional.  

Secretary of State William Galvin  is a supporter of the 20 day rule, saying eliminating it would create  administrative chaos.
