Ballot initiatives often play an important role in passing election integrity measures, and this year was no different. Ohioans approved a measure banning noncitizen voting, while Nebraskans voted in favor of a voter ID requirement.
The Ohio ban on noncitizen voting was overwhelmingly approved and will be enshrined in the state constitution:
The Buckeye State’s voters overwhelmingly chose to ban noncitizens from voting in state and local elections in Issue 2, an election integrity initiative on this year’s ballot , with more than 77% approval as of early Wednesday and just 8% of precincts left to report.Read more
Yet another Democrat secretary of state has “accidently” encouraged non-citizens to illegal register to vote. This time it is Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold:
Around 30,000 non-U.S. citizens living in Colorado were mistakenly sent postcards late last month encouraging them to register to vote. . . .
That Department of Revenue driver's license list includes residents issued special licenses for people who are not U.S. citizens. But it didn't include formatting information that normally would have allowed the Department of State to eliminate those names before the mailers went out, Griswold's office said.
The Colorado postcards, in English and Spanish, specify that residents must be U.S. citizens and at least 18 years old to register. They tell recipients how to register but are not a registration form.Read more
Non-citizens should not vote in American elections. Period. Even a child can quickly understand why this is such a necessary principle for maintaining free and fair elections. Yet Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) seems to think otherwise.
Yesterday, the DOJ Civil Rights Division filed a lawsuit against Arizona for passing H.B. 2492, a commonsense bill that requires proof of citizenship for registering to vote. And as the Biden border crisis rages on, the DOJ’s true colors are beginning to shine through.Read more
In an unprecedented action, the New York City Council approved legislation earlier this month that will give 800,000 noncitizen residents the right to vote in local elections. The New York Post reported:
After an unsuccessful 11th-hour attempt by more than a dozen Democratic and Republican lawmakers to send the legislation back to a committee to be adjusted, the bill passed the 51-member body 33-14 with two abstentions, sending it to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s desk.Read more
On Monday, the Committee on House Administration's Election Subcommittee held a hearing in Florida on “Voting Rights and Election Administration.”
Democrats intentionally stacked the panel full of liberal congressional members and witnesses in order to outnumber Republican representation and stifle our perspective from being heard.
While Congressman Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) was the only Republican member and Logan Churchwell (Public Interest Legal Foundation) served as the only Republican witness, they stood their ground and spoke the truth.Read more
After an 11-month investigation, the Texas Attorney General's office announced they had found nearly 100,000 non-citizens erroneously listed in state voter rolls. More shockingly, more than half of those non-citizens have reportedly voted illegally at least once in an election since registering. Fox News reports:Read more
The 2018 election saw the continuance of the Democrats' attempts at vote fraud, voter disenfranchisement, and ballot mishandling at the county and state levels. Republicans also experienced an attack on the their First Amendment rights, but luckily Republican free speech advocates are on their side. The below posts show exactly how Democrats have influenced elections and interfered with individuals' rights.Read more
Election Day 2018 is just a week away, and already there have been reports of serious election administration problems around the country. Here are a few examples.Read more
As Election Day comes closer, it is worth noting the many problems facing election officials. These “problems” are often a combination of election official incompetence and bad actors. What’s worse is they do not increase turnout, their stated purpose.
One example is the left's push for automatic or mandatory voter registration. This process has the effect of disenfranchising voters from party primaries (thus helping establishment candidates like Hillary Clinton over insurgent candidates like Bernie Sanders) whether intentionally or unintentionally. Mandatory registration cannot select a party for a person and serves to disfranchise more casual voters who only vote every four years in party primaries for President or the like.Read more
