Non-citizens and illegal immigrants are registered to vote in N.Y., election officials say

"Undocumented immigrants are able to apply for driver's licenses in the state, which makes it easier for them to mistakenly become registered eligible voters.

"The state automatically registers them to vote unless they check a small box saying that no, they don't want to get registered to vote," LaLota said. "I would presume some of that happens intentionally, probably a larger amount happens unintentionally, but whatever the case is, the end result is a large amount of folks who are not in our country legally getting put on the rolls."

According to the New York DMV website, "the DMV does not approve or deny voter registration applications," but they "send the application to the County or City Board of Elections for their review."

LaLota said his ability to find and remove non-citizens from voter files on the county level was constrained. "I don't have any tools," he said. "I'm not allowed to, as an elections commissioner, ask anybody from the U.S. Department of State or anybody else, who has citizenship, who has a Social Security number or anything else, so I have no tools here, congressman."

    Looks like passing the buck to me. An election official has a lot of clout. That's why we have them. An election Judge doesn't question someone's right to vote but they can be made to vote on a 'waiver' and the county clerk has to verify they are eligible.

    May I add California to that invalidation idea? These two states with the huge populations of illegals dominate elections and flaunt their ineligible voters like scabs on a junkyard dog.

    Seems to me that if this is the case (and I am not doubting that it is) then ALL votes from NY should be invalidated as they are unable to verify that ALL of their votes are LEGAL votes and Ny should remain that way until they can prove that their Voter roles are compromised of only those that are allowed to legally vote.

    Of course they are.
    And they find out who is registered in FL from public records that I have (It's literally many thousand) and they go in and vote for them in NY where ID is not required.

    When I testified to this, they contacted the UNION EMPLOYEE who was working the polls that day, and the first name on the list... The Employee (Many months later) confirmed that she remembered ACCIDENTALLY checking that person off.

    See, it's not cheating. It's incompetence! So they want us to believe. I totally doubt the story, because we know what election days look like... But hey, she could do that for a bunch of them...
