Report: How Many Non-Citizen Voters? Enough to Make a Difference: The Impact of Non-Citizen Voting on the American Elections
The Social Contract Press
On October 7, 2008, the Social Contract held a press conference at the National Press Club on How Many Non-Citizen Voters? Enough to Make a Difference: The Impact of Non-Citizen Voting on the American Elections - a new study by David Simcox.
The study estimates that in 2006, non-citizen voters ranged from:
- 127,000 to 235,000 in New York
- 57,000 and 113,000 in New Jersey
- 87,000 and 209,000 in Illinois
- 476,000 to 700,000 in California
- 146,000 and 232,000 in Florida
- 161,000 to 333,000 in Texas, and
- 41,000 to 86,000 in Arizona.
Estimated totals nationwide of non-citizen voters in the 2006 elections range from 1,839,000 to 2,714,00 illegal voters.
The figures comprise a substantial voting bloc for the upcoming election, as well as future elections. The report pinpoints absentee voting as the greatest facilitator of fraudulent voting. "Once one has registered fraudulently, he or she can obtain an absentee ballot for every election thereafter if he or she wishes. The lack of 'in-person, at-the-polls' accountability makes absentee ballots the 'tools of choice' for those include to commit voter fraud," the report says.
