Terrifying controversy abounds in numerous states whose voter registration departments are purging "invalid" voters at an enormous -- and apparently illegal -- rate. Welcome to the only state that does not have voter registration, reads the North Dakota Secretary of State informational page on voting registration. The normal requirements (18, no legal impedment to vote, a resident) stand, but you simply have to prove residence for more than 30 days. No rigamarole. No forms. If you bring acceptable proof of residence to the polls you get to vote. Even if the poll operators decline to accept the proof, you can complete the affidavit and continue with your vote. If only more states would take this lead -- the only thing messy registration processes gain is disenfranchisement of voters, and that's a horrible thing. If so much fraud comes before and after, through bureaucratic nonsense, worries about people arriving at the polls fraudulently are rather moot.
