Pueblo Politics: MALDEF wants ballots of those who didn't prove citizenship counted

Quote:
Arizona’s Secretary of State Ken Bennett is denouncing an emergency motion by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund to count the ballots of any individuals who attempted to register to vote but were rejected because they couldn’t prove they were citizens.
Why not just send 20 million U.S. absentee ballots to Mexico City for them to distribute? It would be just as absurd as approving this insane motion.

What do the American people have to say about this? That's what MALDEF and other groups like them need to know. If they know the everybody else is insulted by this stuff and will shut them down, I think they'd stop making these silly demands.

I wonder if the reporter got it right. If people attempted to register to vote but were rejected then there wouldn't be any of their ballots to count.

This motion applies to registration applications rejected in the 90 days before the registration cutoff.

In its motion, MALDEF noted that there would be irreparable harm without a stay because voters would be disenfranchised because of the "unfair and inflexible" registration requirements. "Continued application of Prop. 200 thwarts the fundamental right to vote," the motion states.
This article is applicable to Arizona only.

Apparently none of our laws are applicable to illegals. Only citizens are eligible to vote, and all citizens should be able to prove citizenship. Obviously, they maintain a database, because the MD Board of Elections mailed my 18 y/o son a voter registration form without his request. Illegals have been voting in all states that issue, or issued, driver’s licenses without proof of legal status. I know they have voted in MD. Takoma Park even allows illegals to vote in elections, and believes it’s their “right” to do so. They’re so pro-illegal I wouldn’t be surprised if illegals have run for an elected office.

I wonder why MALDEF isn't insisting on the right of American citizens to vote in it's own country. Mexico has much less voter fraud then we have, non-citizens there are not allowed to vote and citizens must present a picture ID voter card.

Provisional ballots.

Bennett said it would “grind the tabulation process to a halt” as counties search for those who had tried to register, and then went ahead and cast provisional ballots anyway.



All along the border, there is much voter fraud. You see polling places where almost no one can speak a word in English - and ballots are printed in Spanish which would be odd since the citizenship test supposedly tests for English language ability and even the schools are supposed to teach at least a little English.

You see people show up with no ID or voter registration to vote.

You are correct. The test is given in english and there is a vocabulary test portion.
1 question on the test. What is 1 right reserved only for US citizens? Now there are multiple answers. But 1 is the right to vote in a federal election.
