Election Integrity Starts with Citizen Only Voting

Ballot security is a hot topic right now but the efforts to secure our ballots will be nothing if non-citizens are allowed to legally vote.

Non-Citizen Voting is Coming to North Carolina

California, Illinois, Maryland, Vermont, and New York allow non-citizens to vote in local and school board elections. The movement to allow non-citizens to vote is alive and well. The Vermont legislature overrode the governor’s veto last summer and the New York City Council voted to let non-citizens vote in December of 2021. It is not a question of if the non-citizen voting movement will come to North Carolina but when.

You Can Stop Non-Citizen Voting

A constitutional amendment to clarify that only citizens of the United States are allowed to vote in any election would protect North Carolina’s election integrity. The constitutions of Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, Minnesota, North Dakota, and Ohio allow only citizens to vote in those states.

A Non-Partisan Issue

Citizen Only Voting is one of the few non-partisan issues. According to polling, support in the general public is a little higher among Republicans but Democrats still favor Citizen Only Voting by a wide margin. But inside state legislatures this issue has become very partisan. However, the Iowa legislature recently passed Citizen Only Voting UNANIMOUSLY. Why is that? This November’s election results will show just how smart legislators in Iowa are when the anti citizen-only legislators in Georgia, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Wisconsin face the wrath of the voters.
