Some states do have same-day voter registration, but people have to provide the same level of identification as when

With threats around the world like war, terrorism,
kidnappings, and other violence, U.S. cities are nowhere near the most dangerous in the world. Four American cities — though not Oakland or Ferguson — have some of
