What am I missing on Voter Registration and other election laws?

Someone please logically explain to me how voting laws are partisan. 

I'll be glad to explain. The voting laws under discussion are ones that would give everyone who is a legal citizen a way to vote in the jurisdiction in which they live. They would also make it difficult for anyone who is not a legal resident of a jurisdiction to vote in that jurisdiction's elections.
The laws don't mandate that anyone vote; it is up to individuals to know when an election will occur, what jurisdiction they live in, who the candidates for office in that election/jurisdiction are, and how to vote if they choose to do so.
Republicans are people who believe that voters should be perfectly capable of knowing all of these things if they choose to. Democrats think that anyone who isn't capable of learning any of those things, or who chooses not to learn them, needs to have someone vote for them.
It's another way of doing for the needy what they can't do for themselves.

Hard-hearted Republicans who don't help the needy vs. Democrats who look out for the poor and disenfranchised - what could be more partisan than that?
