In some localities, voters can register to vote on the same day as which they vote. This encourages voter turnout, especially for voters for whom earlier registration is a hardship. According to "America Goes to the Polls: A Report on Voter Turnout in the 2006 Election" (prepared by the Nonprofit Voter Engagement Network): "The largest measurable difference in turnout is in states that have Election Day Registration and allow voters to address a registration issue or register on Election Day. These states had turnout 13 points ahead of the other states, a turnout advantage consistent since this practice was first adopted in the 1970's."
