HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – State lawmakers are pushing legislation that would allow Pennsylvanians to vote on the same day they register.

Pennsylvania would become the 13th state to permit same-day voter registration under House Bill 13.

Rep. Ryan A. Bizzarro (D-Erie) and Rep. Kevin Schreiber (D-York) said at a Capitol news conference Monday that their proposal would increase convenience and turnout, especially among young, minority and low-income voters.

Pennsylvanians could register at their polling place on Election Day and complete a provisional ballot, which would be counted once the Department of State approves the application.

Critics of same-day registration say it increases the potential for voter fraud.

Bizzarro and Schreiber said there has not been one documented case of voter fraud that resulted from same-day registration.

Current law requires residents to register at least 30 days before an election.
