With early voting starting Thursday, North Carolina’s election board found 154 ineligible voters on its poll lists — and officials are examining thousands more questionable registrations.

The illegal immigrants landed on the state’s voter rolls, courtesy of the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The State Board of Elections said late Tuesday that more than 9,000 additional voters’ names are being checked for legal status. They do not expect to finish checking before early voting starts Thursday.

“We don’t know what we don’t know,” special counsel Brian LiVecchi told this reporter.

Nearly 10,000 names on the rolls are tagged by the state Department of Motor Vehicles as “legally present,” but the Winston-Salem Journal reported that doesn’t mean all 10,000 are ineligible to vote.

When immigrants are certified under DACA, deportation proceedings are frozen. That opens a window for individuals to obtain driver’s licenses in North Carolina because the state opted into the DACA program, said James Johnson, president of North Carolinians For Immigration Reform and Enforcement.

But holding a driver’s licenses doesn’t automatically qualify DACA individuals to vote if their legal residency is merely “deferred.” DACA designees can be up to 31 years old.

Jay DeLancy, executive director of the Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina, said:

We want to know how such a large number of non-U.S. citizens were ever registered to vote in the first place. There is clearly a system failure here and we need the Board of Elections and the DMV to help the Legislature and the public understand where the problem lies.

State Rep. Christopher Mills, wrote a letter to the Board of Elections this week citing “an extremely large number of non-citizens” on North Carolina’s voter rolls. Mills asked that election officials explain the “likely procedure in which these non-citizens were allowed to register to vote … and the board’s actions for immediate removal.”
