21 non-citizens voted in the 2016 election in the State of Nevada.
Via The Daily Caller:
The 21 non-citizens — and about 80 other non-citizens — registered to vote through the Department of Motor Vehicles despite having “presented evidence of non-citizenship,” Cegavske wrote in a statement about her office’s investigation into the integrity of the election.
Cegavske released a statement in January saying that she had “no evidence of voters illegally casting ballots at the most recent election in Nevada.”
“At that time this office had charged two individuals with election-related crimes, one relating to voter registration, and one related to signature gathering for initiative petitions,” a spokesman from Cegavske said Wednesday. “Both of the individuals charged have pleaded guilty to felony charges.”
The statement continued, “In March, the Secretary of State’s office obtained from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) a list of just over 100 people statewide who: (1) presented evidence of non-citizenship while obtaining services from the DMV; and (2) completed a voter registration application while at the DMV. After determining that 21 individuals from that list voted, this information was given to investigators with the Secretary of State’s office. Based upon the information obtained to date we have evidence that three non-citizens illegally registered and voted in Clark County in the last election.”
Cegavske’s office said it expects to release additional information about the probe in the next few months.
“Nevada’s election and driver licensing officials need to come together to resolve this matter. Both are operating under imperfect federal rules that will likely need to be addressed by Congress in the near future as this problem worsens across the country,” Logan Churchwell, communications and research director for the Public Interest Legal Foundation, told The Daily Caller in an email statement.
This is precisely what liberals tell you “never happens.” They will say it is nearly impossible to vote in a Federal election if you aren’t a citizen. It just doesn’t happen. Not true!
In a state like Nevada where the margins of victory were very slim, a small number of illegal votes can throw the entire election. I wonder how many more voted that they just didn’t catch yet.
