Illinois voters will be able to register and cast their ballot at the same time - on election day, Nov. 8th. The U.S. Court of Appeals handed down a ruling Friday that puts an end to a series of back-and-forth court orders issued in recent weeks.
Illinois first permitted voters to register on election day two years ago. But it only had to be available at one location in a jurisdiction.
In places it was so popular, there were huge lines.
A law set to take effect for this general election sought to curb that problem.
