An attempt to institute automatic voter registration in Illinois is dead.
Republican Governor Bruce Rauner cited potential voter fraud when he previously rejected the legislation.
The House failed Tuesday to override his veto.
GOP State Representative Mike Fortner of West Chicago says the plan is flawed. He says it would have created too long a government paper trail on anyone choosing to opt out of registering, and that's a security issue.
Fortner says there are better ways to make registering easier.
