If you aren’t a citizen and go to a state department of motor vehicles office, and pass a driver’s license test, you can register to vote– through the computer.
If you aren’t a citizen you can join the U.S. military, and also register to vote, and vote illegally.
The Washington Times reports of a man named Angelo, who is not a citizen and joined the U.S. military. He registered to vote at the Pennsylvania motor vehicle bureau as a Democrat. “He then voted nearly every year from 2001 through 2014,” the Times reports.
One local official in Pennsylvania estimated that there are currently 100,000 illegitimate voters in Pennsylvania because of problems with PennDOT’s system and the state’s inability to detect and deter fraud.
Non- U.S. citizens are prohibited from voting in U.S. elections. They should never be allowed to register, much less vote, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) argues.
PILF reports that the vast majority of the people reported themselves only when they tried to apply for citizenship or some kind of immigration benefit, and learned that voting illegally and registering to vote is a felony.
The only way fraudulent voting is reported is by the illegal alien themselves, the Times points out. PILF argues that there is no evidence that the state corrected the mistakes or alerted local officials that they may have thousands of illegals voting.
J. Christian Adams, president of PILF, said, “There’s no doubt that there is far more and far worse. These are just the people who wrote in [saying], ‘Since I’m not a citizen, take me off the roll.’ These are the people who wanted to fix it,” he said. “If you deny this is happening, you’re part of the problem at this point.”
According to the 1993 federal “motor voter” law, those seeking to renew their driver’s licenses or transact other business at their state’s motor vehicle offices are asked if they want to register to vote. There is no verification that those applying are citizens.
The noncitizen voters identified in PILF’s report described how easy it is to get register without being a U.S. citizen.
Some who did register, PILF reports, were encouraged to do so by motor vehicles bureau staff members.
Several non-citizens said that state employees “gave them the impression that their registration was just an application and figured someone would verify their answers to determine whether they were eligible.” Which, no one did.
Adams argues, “State elections officials are abdicating their responsibility as custodians of the election system.”
He added, “The better approach for the local and state election officials is to say we’ve got a problem and we want to fix it. But Pennsylvania and every election official I’ve seen in that state is in a state of denial,” Mr. Adams said.
