Would it have been better for Ritchie to first obtain the Legislature's explicit blessing? Sure. But is he "wrong"? Should this be a routine available method of registration going forward? No question. (What CAN'T you routinely do on-line these days?) But -- whoa -- wait. Since the GOP believes its election chances are improved if voter turnout is lower, expect it to throw up whatever road blocks its brain wizards think they can get away with which slow down moving the registration process into the 21st century with its expected, resultant increase in voter participation.
