Troubling trend: non-citizens found on U.S. voter rolls
Regardless of whether you’re a daily news hound or an infrequent consumer of the mainstream media, you’re bound to have heard about cyber hacking and Russian meddling within our election process since the election of Donald Trump. There’s simply no escaping it, no matter how hard we try.
Moreover, the amount of attention both the political pundits and the news media give this issue, the more they divert attention from the real issue of voter fraud taking place all across America.
In a just-released report by the “Interest Legal Foundation”, a nonprofit organization specializing in election integrity, it was found that non-Americans are somehow being added to our nations voter rolls. In fact, they found particular states such as Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginia have a higher number of non-American showing up within their voter rolls. Thanks in part to convoluted registration methods, with little oversight policies in-place, for rooting out non-citizens from actually casting ballots in an election.
The Washington Times highlighted one such incident, which is becoming a lot more pervasive than the continuous news coverage of Russian meddling.
Elizaveta Shuvalova became a U.S. citizen in 2017, however, she has been a registered voter since 2012 within San Francisco’s voter rolls.
The Russian native was perplexed to find herself on the voter rolls, saying she wasn’t an American citizen and didn’t even register to vote.
“I’ve never registered for anything in my entire life,” Shuvalova told the paper. “This is news to me.”
Shuvalova who identifies as a Democrat continued, “This is definitely a shocker to me. It is like an identity fraud because this is not coming from my end. Like I told you, I haven’t even been a citizen during that time frame. So what can we do about it?”
An excellent question indeed, considering that much of the voter fraud taking place seems to be coming from progressive states that have liberal policies regarding illegal aliens.
For example, the granting of driver’s licenses to illegal aliens in San Francisco (Shuvalova’s hometown), which combines an automatic voter registration policy with the renewal of driver’s licenses.
Moreover, the incident involving Shuvalova is part of a much wider and growing issue taking place within many parts of our country.
For instance, in 2017, the nonprofit organization found that nearly 5,600 people on the voter rolls in Virginia were deemed as “non-citizens”, with a third of them voting in previous elections.
PILF Research Director Logan Churchwell acknowledged, “Our voter registration system masks non-citizens and allows the opportunity to vote until they decide to self-report at their own peril. All of this could have been prevented if states actually verified citizen eligibility upfront.”
A 2013 petition for a ballot initiative concerning housing development in San Francisco, might have been the signature needed for a political activist to enroll Shuvalova as a legal voter, without her knowledge.
John Arntz, Director of the San Francisco Department of Elections, admitted to the Times that a signed registration card was submitted to his office to qualify the woman as a signer of the petition, then admitting that activists often distribute registration cards along with their petitions.
This “slight-of-hand” attempt at registering non-citizens is no different then Russia meddling within our election process, both practices are illegal and subject to prosecution.
A sequel report by the Interest Legal Foundation just published reveals the voting history records in Virginia, and perhaps the most blatant example of politically motivated voter fraud thus far.
In that, the number of individuals within Virginia jurisdictions, registered to vote exceeds the number of citizens eligible to vote. It would appear there’s something nefarious taking place within those blue states which must be investigated before the midterm elections in November.
