Motor Voter and its Effects
In 1993 President Clinton signed the new National Voter Registration Act, aka “Motor Voter” law. It had passed through the House and Senate on a straight party line vote, and was criticized by conservatives and cheered by liberals. When the President signed the bill into law, Columbia University radicals Richard Cloward and Frances Piven stood at his side. Cloward and Piven had been urging Democrats to pass such a law since the mid 1980’s.
