The left seems to do anything to get voters.
When they can’t get enough, they have been known to bend the rules.
And now they have succeeded in forcing three states to allow illegal aliens to vote.
The League of Women Voters, a group whose mission is to “Empower Voters” has challenged proof of citizenship on federal mail voter registration forms in Kansas, Alabama, and Georgia.
Despite support for the measure, a federal appeals court has blocked the requirement, allowing people to vote without providing proof of citizenship.
The League of Women Voters argues that “this action has illegally kept voters from the polls, caused confusion, and threatened the lawful voter registration efforts of the League and other groups.”
As reported by NPR:
“A federal appeals court has blocked a proof-of-citizenship requirement on a federal mail voter registration form in Kansas, Alabama and Georgia.
The case pits Brian Newby, U.S. Election Assistance Commission executive director who argues that the requirement prevents voter fraud, against the League of Women Voters, which argues the documentation requirement disenfranchises voters.
Newby approved the three states’ request for the proof-of-citizenship requirement in January, which meant that voters registering had to show documentation such as a birth certificate or a passport.
“This action has illegally kept voters from the polls, caused confusion, and threatened the lawful voter registration efforts of the League and other groups,” the League said in a statement. Its president, Chris Carson, said the requirement had amounted to “thinly veiled discrimination.” Carson praised the ruling blocking it and said that “we should be making voting easier, not harder. All eligible Americans deserve the opportunity to register and vote without obstacles.”
In Kansas, the requirement disproportionately impacted people under 30, the elderly, and those living in urban areas, as The Wichita Eagle’s Brian Lowry told Weekend Edition Sunday last month.
As NPR’s Pam Fessler explained, in other states “the federal form, which can be used throughout the United States as an alternative to local voter registration forms, requires individuals to swear that they are citizens. It does not require a birth certificate or other document as proof.”
This dispute is distinct from the many other voter ID fights playing out across the country, as Pam reported back in February. “Unlike most voter ID conflicts — which involve showing identification at the polls — this comes earlier in the process, when residents are first registering to vote,” Pam said.”
Many conservatives allege that this measure will encourage voter fraud.
Without proof of citizenship being required, it makes it possible not only for those who don’t have U.S. citizenship to vote but also makes it much easier for individuals to vote on behalf of others.
In past elections, it has been revealed that dead people had voted.
These cases of voter fraud have been most prevalent in Democrat-controlled cities and states.
For that reason, many are seeing this push as nothing more than a way to help Democrats.
Do you think that illegal aliens should be allowed to vote?
