Attorney General Eric Holder, who is against Voter ID, is now calling the voting system outdated. According to Bloomberg:

The U.S. should consider automatically registering eligible voters and extending voting hours to counter the November election’s long lines and administrative hurdles, Attorney General Eric Holder said.

 

Holder, speaking today at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston, proposed expanding access for voters and overhauling a registration system he called “antiquated.”

 

“It is important for national leaders, academic experts, and members of the public to engage in a frank, thorough and inclusive discussion about how our election systems can be made stronger and more accessible,” Holder said in prepared remarks.

 

President Barack Obama called for changes on election night after voters in states including Florida and Virginia waited for hours to cast ballots. Obama, while thanking voters who stood in line “for a very long time,” added, “By the way, we have to fix that.”

Holder also went on to say that troubling divisions still remain in parts of the country. Holder was making reference to those states that have passed Voter ID. Automatic registration is what Holder wants. Bad idea, especially when you don’t need an ID.
