State legislators are making another attempt to bring automatic voter registration to Illinois.
Democrats filed bills Friday in the state House and Senate that would register state residents to vote automatically when they visit certain state agencies, unless they decide to opt out.
The agencies include the Secretary of State's offices, where residents apply for driver's licenses, and four others.
Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner vetoed an automatic voter registration proposal last year, despite wide support in the General Assembly. He called for more safeguards.
