Non-citizens have been registering to vote in PA for years

Non-citizens have been registering to vote in PA for years”

Trump, who lost the 2016 popular vote to Clinton but won the election, has created a commission to investigate his unsubstantiated claims of widespread USA voter fraud.

Schmidt has informed the PA Department of State of these irregularities. Non-citizens, living here legally, are allowed to drive but not vote, but Schmidt thinks they didn't realize that.

PennDOT - Pennsylvania's Department of Transportation - announced Wednesday it's changing its "Motor Voter" system to prevent noncitizens from illegally registering to vote.

Al Schmidt, a Republican who sits on Philadelphia's three-member election commission, said that since 2006 at least 168 noncitizens registered to vote in the city through the motor voter driver's licensing system.

Some people who are in the USA legally but who are not citizens were mistakenly allowed to register to vote in Philadelphia because of a glitch in Pennsylvania's electronic driver's licensing system, a city election official said Wednesday.

"This is a real concern", Schmidt said.

All of the 317 registrations have been canceled, Schmidt said.

Schmidt said his office has researched the issue since the 2012 primary election, when his office released a report identifying various voting irregularities.

He found three-quarters of them signed up when they got their driver's license. Currently, the application process automatically asks those immigrants - via touch screen - if they want to register to vote.

The department is looking into the total number of mistakenly registered voters and could not provide an estimate, the spokeswoman said. We are also placing additional notices to inform all applicants of laws regarding voter registration.

Schmidt said 155 of the ineligible voters registered as Democrats, 23 as Republicans, and 42 as independents or members of smaller political parties. The other half voted multiple times - between two and twelve times during that span with the highest number of votes cast during the 2008 General Election, the first time President Barack Obama was elected. That was.0065 percent of the 718,025 votes cast in that race in Philadelphia.

A PennDot spokeswoman on Wednesday referred questions to the Department of State, noting that her agency "is not involved with processing the applications" for voter registration. "If you've registered to vote in the USA, and you're not a citizen, it's potential grounds for the denial of your citizenship application". (The department told media the matter is under review). The enhancement is in place at 89 of 97 PennDOT locations and the rollout will be complete in a few weeks.

The Trump administration has repeatedly claimed that millions of non-citizens voted in the 2016 General Election. He is asking PennDOT to fix the glitch, for the state to review voter records in the state's other 66 counties, and for the state and PennDOT to cross-reference its databases to find all the non-citizens who are registered to vote. Cortes said at the time some noncitizens may "inadvertently register" to vote at PennDot while obtaining or updating a driver's license.

The report also shows that most of those people never voted.

"It undermines the integrity of elections and it undermines their own chances of becoming citizens", Schmidt says.
