Being automatically added to the system is a way to ease so much stress on election day. There are hundreds of people that show up to the polls only to find out that a problem occurred when they tried to register on their own. Most of the time, they are turned away due to lack of registration. It's such a shame, because voter turn out could be so much higher if the registration process was streamlined and automatic. Why we aren't doing this already in 2016 boggles my mind.
