DENVER (AP) -- Changes to election Colorado rules allowing same-day voter registration and mailing ballots to all registered voters will get its first hearing in a state House committee.

The Democrat-sponsored bill would also eliminate a category of voters considered inactive because they failed to vote in the most recent election. That category restricts voters' ability to get ballots by mail.

The bill will get testimony and a possible first vote on Monday.

Republicans have criticized Democrats who wrote the bill, saying GOP leaders were left out of the process. Republicans also say the changes are meant to benefit Democrats.

Democrats say the goal of the bill is to increase voter participation.
