According to a Winston-Salem Journal report, the State Board of Elections discovered the potential illegal voters Tuesday night when the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles ran a search for DACA licenses. The 145 DACA recipients whose names appear on the SBOE’s voting rolls will be sent letters requesting documentation that they are citizens, the report noted.
DACA beneficiaries in North Carolina are able to obtain drivers licenses, but they are not able to vote.
The Journal notes that it is likely more ineligible people may still remain on the voting rolls.
Nearly 10,000 names on the rolls are tagged by the DMV as "legally present," according to elections and transportation officials. But that doesn’t mean that all 10,000 are ineligible to vote at this time. These are license holders who were not U.S. citizens when they got a license. They may have been green-card holders, foreign workers or foreign students, for example.
Most have become U.S. citizens since getting a license, according to an estimate by elections officials based on a sample of the overall list.
According to the report, earlier this month the SBOE officials did a sample cross-check of 1,600 of the 10,000 “legally present” names against a Department of Homeland Security database and found that 94 percent were U.S. citizens and eligible to vote. However, that still meant that six percent were ineligible, meaning if the ratio held for the whole 10,000, 600 people would be ineligible.
Mike Charbonneau, a DMV spokesman, told the Journal that it is now cross checking all the names.
If they don't disallow these 145 and look for all the others that are there, they deserve what they get. I'm not real happy about their lack of responsibility being responsible for the loss of my freedon, liberties and my country. I would say get with it, North Carolina!!!
And this surprises us how?????...the demons will do ANYTHING to win...why don't repubs do this???????? Oh thats right ...we have honor and ethics....commies don't play by rules.....
The only way the demons could win in Nov. is by raising the dead and dragging them to the polling places, having illegals vote and vote often, tampering with the machines, bribery and other acts of fraud.
those that registered to vote should be prosecuted and sent packing. no prison, that costs money.. if they return, 5 year sentence in Arpio's Jail.. that should fix their ass.
Pretty in pink, and out underneath the stars in a tent. Yep, suits me. Then deportation. Begining to think we the citizens need to patrol the border.
The voting rolls should also be checked for illegal alien criminals who were recently released from prisons due to "budget constraints".
All Tea Party members need to Google the candidates for positions in your court system and find if they are liberal or conservative. It is the courts who control our county. Public vote means nothing as the courts will negate the voter. We, in California, were presented with Goodwin Liu, who has impressive credentials until you go to his political leftism. An EXTREME radical supported by Obama. You have to find what they represent before you vote.
I have an absentee ballot. If you vote at a booth, it will take more homework. Get your absentee ballot so you are not encumbered by time in a voting booth. You need time with Google!
