The latest trend in fixing our broken elections is worrying about aliens. For sure, foreigners are getting on the rolls, and foreigners are voting.

Many years ago, this problem was apparent to me when I was in the election office in Philadelphia, where a large box was marked “non-citizen voting.”

 

The latest trend in fixing our broken elections is worrying about aliens. For sure, foreigners are getting on the rolls, and foreigners are voting.

Many years ago, this problem was apparent to me when I was in the election office in Philadelphia, where a large box was marked “non-citizen voting.”

It turns out that Pennsylvania led the way for aliens to register and vote. 

We discovered a so-called “glitch” in Pennsylvania that led to between 10,000 and 100,000 foreigners getting on the rolls. This is still the subject of litigation, which has been ongoing for six years. 

Pennsylvania admits they let aliens register and vote due to the “glitch” but still refuses to provide the public with records showing the extent of the problem and what was done to fix it. The Third Circuit will hear arguments shortly in the case, which will impact foreigners' getting on the voter rolls more than most every case before it.

So what can be done about foreigners getting on the voter rolls? Unfortunately, not as much as some would like. Here are some paths toward improvement.

The best solution would be for the federal government to open the “SAVE” database to states. SAVE is a Department of Homeland Security database that contains every alien who has touched the federal government—from green card holders to detainees. If states were given access to SAVE to run bulk data comparisons with voter rolls, then the problem would be largely solved.:snip:
