Our second story OutFront: getting out the vote.
There is nothing like being an American citizen. You can say what you want, our roads are safe for the most part, and you get to vote and determine your elected representatives in government. Or do you?
It's no secret that voter turnout is relatively low in this country, but according to the Census Bureau, 60 million people failed to vote in 2008 because they were not registered.
Some had either moved, were unaware of the deadline to register or discouraged by the complex registration procedures. Speaking last night, Attorney General Eric Holder said that one potential fix is to "...automatically register every eligible voter in America and enable their registration to move when they do."
Is this an obvious solution or government going too far? OutFront tonight are CNN contributors Roland Martin and David Frum.
