MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker says he would sign a bill that ends same-day voter registration in Wisconsin, but he won't make doing away with it a priority.
Walker told The Associated Press in a Monday interview that his longstanding opposition to same-day registration stands, but seeking a bill next year in the Legislature to do that is "certainly not a priority."
The issue has gotten more attention recently after Walker said in a speech earlier this month in California that he thinks it would be easier on election clerks of voters could not register at the polls.
Walker says his comments have gotten a disproportionate amount of attention. He says he is focused on his economic agenda in the Legislature next year, which includes passing a new two-year budget.
