(POLL) Illegal immigrants should not be allowed to vote in US

Ninety-nine percent (99%) say illegal immigrants should not be allowed to vote.

That’s according to the latest unscientific poll at SharylAttkisson.com.

Pew Research Center states there were over 25 million noncitizens living in the US as of 2020. That includes approximately 12 million permanent residents and 2 million temporary residents who were in the country with legal permission, as well as approximately 11 million illegal immigrants.

In 1996, the Congress passed a law prohibiting noncitizens from voting in federal elections, including elections for the HouseSenate, and presidential elections.

However, this law does not apply to elections for state and local offices.

According to Ballotpedia, as of May 2024, the District of Columbia and municipalities in CaliforniaMaryland, and Vermont allow noncitizens to vote in some or all local elections.

On May 8, Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson Wednesday unveiled a bill that would require states to verify proof of citizenship as a means to prevent noncitizens from voting in federal elections.

As the 2024 Election looms closer with less than six months to go, the hot debate on both sides of the aisle wages on.

  1. Of course they shouldn’t and neither should legal immigrants until they become naturalized citizens. We remained non-citizen legal permanent residents for almost 30 years before becoming naturalized (long story) and were appropriately not able to vote all that time. If I recall one of the questions on the citizenship application was about whether you had voted or registered to vote and a yes answer would probably result in denial.

  2. Makes perfect sense.
    Can I go to their country and vote? Of course not, why is the question even being raised? Oh wait, isn’t that Biden’s plan.

  3. Non-citizens, which includes illegals have never been allowed to vote in Federal elections. Since most citizens are for states and local communities to set their own rules, they should decide if they want non-citizens voting in their elections. I would oppose such a privilege but tax paying non-citizens might get my support to vote locally.
