MADISON, Wis. -

A final report on how much it would cost Wisconsin to do away with same-day voter registration has been delayed.

The state Government Accountability Board in December issued a preliminary report saying doing away with allowing voters to register at the polls on Election Day would cost $5 million initially and about $1 million annually after that.

The board which oversees elections had hoped to have a final report done by the end of December. But at its meeting Monday, elections division administrator Mike Haas said the board was still waiting on cost estimates from two or three other state agencies.

Haas said a final report will be done as soon as possible.

Gov. Scott Walker supports ending same-day registration but says he won't sign a bill costing $5 million.
