Non-citizens removed from voter rolls have been voting

Posted by |

Non-citizens registered to vote (and voting in some cases) are voluntarily taking themselves off voter rolls according to testimony given Monday at a hearing in San Antonio.

Left-wing groups are trying to stop routine list maintenance initiated by the Secretary of State to remove non-citizens from voting rolls, a needed process that is working.

Keith Ingram, elections director for the secretary of state’s office, testified that 45 non-citizens with recent voting histories have taken themselves off voter rolls. These non-citizens appear to have done so without receiving a notice from county officials.

In January, the secretary of state’s office sent a list of 100,000 potential non-citizens who were registered to vote to county officials calling on them to investigate and if warranted send letters of determination to verify citizenship status. The left and allies in the media sprang into action to stop the effort.

Halfbaked Voter ID Expansion Proposed

Posted by |

State Rep. Erin Zwiener (D-Driftwood) has filed legislation that would allow student IDs to be used as voter ID in Texas.

As is the case with many bills aimed at elections, this bill has consequences not highlighted in a press release or mainstream media regurgitation.

Filed on Tuesday, HB 1950 would amend current state law regarding voter ID adding, “an identification card issued by a public institution of higher education located in this state that contains the person’s photograph.”

Currently, acceptable forms of photo ID include a Texas driver’s license or election ID card issued by DPS, a U.S. military identification card that contains the person’s photograph, a U.S. citizenship certificate, a U.S passport, or a concealed carry permit, also issued by the DPS. Photo IDs must not have expired or expired no earlier than four years before the date of presentation.

Report: Voter ID Isn’t Suppression

Posted by |

According to a recent report released by the National Bureau of Economic Research, Voter ID laws do not disenfranchise voters. The NBER is a nonpartisan non-profit based out of Massachusetts with a New York outpost.

According to Working Paper 25522, which reviewed elections from 2008 to 2016, the paper’s authors found voter ID laws have “no negative effect on registration or turnout, overall or for any group defined by race, gender, age, or party affiliation.”

Additionally, the researchers found that voter ID laws “do not decrease the participation of ethnic minorities relative to whites.”
