Illegal Voting in the U.S.
Illegal voting by illegal aliens in local, county, state, and federal elections in the U.S. has become a serious concern. With driver’s licenses made available by several states to aliens (both legal and illegal), it seems likely that voter rolls now contain large numbers of aliens who can illegally vote. Since the illegal alien obtains the voter registration document fraudulently, we already know that the law has been violated. However, there has been a discovery that an illegal alien vote in an election does not void the election results. Voter registration cards can also be used for other illegal document activities by illegal aliens. If an alien is found with a voter registration card in their possession when arrested by immigration officers, they are subject to and processed for deportation proceedings based on possession of the card only.
