Prior to the 2018 midterm election, an error at various California DMV outlets resulted 1,500 people, including non citizens, being incorrectly registered to vote.
The errors occurred between April 23rd and September 5th.
This revelation comes after California DMV’s botched 23,000 voter registration forms by putting the wrong party affiliation for voters. Because California is an ‘open primary’ state, these errors likely did not affect anyone’s right to vote.
The improper voter registration occurred when people “accidentally filled in the wrong voter eligibility response on driver’s license applications,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle, and the DMV employees failed to correct the mistake.
In a state where illegal aliens are eligible for drivers licenses, many are concerned about the potential for illegal alien’s being registered to vote.
A 2014 study found non citizen votes likely had a noticeable effect on the composition of Congress in the 2008 election as well as “likely gave Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health care reform.” Illegal aliens are also much more likely to favor democrats over republicans giving democrats an unfair advantage when non citizens are left on the voter rolls.
With 39 million incidents of Social Security fraud committed between 2012 and 2016, with many being stolen for use by illegal aliens, it is reasonable to assume illegal aliens are capable of finding ways to fraudulently register to vote.
Non-citizen interference in elections is objectively bad. Luckily, California claims to be taking steps towards stopping false voter registration.
