They want to make it possible for someone to walk into a polling place on Election Day, with no prior notice and with something as flimsy as a utility bill or bank statement or a government document that merely has a name and address on it, and allow that person to register and vote. The invitation for mischief is easily imaginable. And for some, the temptation for fraud almost certainly irresistible.
