Many suspected ineligible CO voters US citizens
Earlier this month, Republican Secretary of State Scott Gessler sent letters to nearly 4,000 people questioning their citizenship as part of a plan to have them voluntarily withdraw or confirm their eligibility to vote.
State officials were able to run 1,400 of those names through a federal immigration database and found that more than 1,200 were U.S. citizens. Verification of the remaining names is still pending, but so far, the search hasn't turned up any non-citizens registered to vote.
why are we wasting time and money on a problem that statistically (and practically) does not exist?
There are dozens of states working on various "voter id" laws. Why? Since 2000 there have been TEN cases of voter id "fraud" prosecuted. zero convictions. zero. Where is the problem here?
