[Ed. – Think about that “unwittingly” point. If the non-citizens aren’t aware that they registered to vote — they’re not voting. But someone else could be voting in their name. Emphasis in original.]
A review of New Jersey’s publicly available voter records has uncovered hundreds of non-citizens registered to vote in 11 of the state’s counties.
In addition to demonstrating the scale of just one of many elements — non-citizen registrants — of the nation’s failure to maintain election integrity, the review found that three-quarters of the non-citizens had revealed their ineligible status to a New Jersey state official, who then presented and accepted the illegal forms anyway. …
The study covered New Jersey, but similar results should be expected in all 50 states.
The apparent cause of the situation is a consequence of requirements enacted by a federal law: former President Bill Clinton’s National Voter Registration Act of 1993, commonly known as “Motor Voter.” …
[O]fficials in New Jersey — and likely throughout the country — have been presenting voter registration forms to non-citizens.
And in the vast majority of the cases found by the study, this was not accidental: most non-citizens revealed their ineligible status — some even presented green cards — yet were given the forms anyway.
