More Noncitizens Drive Through Motor Voter System
Hundreds of noncitizens were invited by public officials to register to vote in New Jersey while obtaining driver’s licenses and other government services. Some even registered after presenting their Green Cards, and nearly one in 10 voted. A review of county records in the Garden State found numerous gaps in applying the so-called Motor Voter law:
- 616 noncitizens in 11 counties engaged on some level with New Jersey’s voter registration system, with 9 percent of aliens casting ballots.
- 75 percent of the declared noncitizens were invited to register to vote, even after presenting Green Cards. Many of these transactions occurred while the individuals were applying for driver’s permits or at community colleges.
- Six counties, including one “sanctuary county,” claimed to have never seen noncitizens registered or applying to vote.
