Groups say states violating voter registration law - The Associated Press

The Associated Press: Groups say states violating voter registration law:

WASHINGTON (AP) — States across the country are violating part of the federal 'motor voter' law requiring voter registration help for low-income residents, according to a coalition of advocacy groups trying to force change through the courts.

The groups filed lawsuits in Indiana and New Mexico on Thursday on the heels of a successful settlement in Missouri. They say the problem is not isolated in those few states but widespread across the nation, and they are trying to help other states follow the law without litigation.
