      Voting rights advocates hope to establish automatic voter registration in Massachusetts.

      A bill has been filed that would automatically register people to vote when they renew their driver’s license, register a vehicle, or apply for MassHealth.  

         WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Janet Domenitz, executive director of MassPirg, and a member of the Election Modernization Coalition.
