The state won’t be having its request for another hearing on same day voter registration heard by a federal judge. The Illinois Attorney General’s Office was denied the opportunity by Judge Samuel Der-Yeghiayan. The judge refused to reconsider his decision that the same day option benefited Democratic strongholds. That flew against the argument from the AG that not allowing same day registration would unfairly deny some citizens voting rights. This isn’t the last step in the appeal process, another one can be filed to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
