New York Senate Democrats have passed a bill that could automatically register people to vote when they interact with the DMV, months after governor Andrew Cuomo signed the “Green Light Bill” into law, allowing illegal aliens the right to a driver’s license. illegal aliens voter registration

The summary of the bill states its intent to “establish an electronic personal voter registration process integrated within designated agency applications.” Documents processed at the DMV and Department of Health would apply.

This legislation “would create a system of automatic voter registration when a person submits an application to the Department of Health or the Department of Motor Vehicles,” CNN reports.

Illegals applying for a driver’s license would not be excluded and, in fact, would have to physically “opt-out of voter registration at the point of service.” If not, they would be registered.

The bill will now move on to the Democrat-controlled Assembly, and if passed, could be signed into law by Cuomo. It would take effect two years after becoming law.

This Was the Plan All Along

Is there any doubt that Democrats in the liberal cesspool of New York were planning on this series of steps to get illegals involved in elections from the start?

Republican state Senator Jim Tedisco, who voted against the legislation, previously explained that granting licenses to illegals is a slap in the face to people who come to this country legally.

“Giving driver’s licenses to those here illegally sends the wrong message to honest, law-abiding citizens and those who are trying to do the right thing and have been in line for quite some time to become American citizens,” he said at the time of the ‘Green Light Bill’ being signed into law.

Now they’re going to allow them a pathway to the right to vote in our elections?

It’s absolutely reprehensible.

Voter Fraud 

The Political Insider in June warned of the potential of voter fraud if illegal aliens are given a driver’s license, citing reports of a loophole in the law that would allow it.

This bill actually expands that loophole and makes it perfectly conceivable that illegals will be added to New York voter rolls.

Rensselaer County Executive Steve McLaughlin said at the time, “All this is by design, and I’m guaranteeing within a year, they’re going to start to say let’s just let them vote, they’re here anyway.”

Illegality moves swiftly in the Empire State and it took no more than seven months for McLaughlin’s fears to be realized.
