Legal Group: 100K Non-U.S.Citizens are Registered to Vote in Pa.
UPDATED 1:28 PM PT — Tues. February 27, 2018
A Conservative legal group says more than 100,000 non-U.S. citizens are registered to vote in Pennsylvania.
In a lawsuit filed Monday against the state, the Public Interest Legal Foundation claimed Pennsylvania officials have known that non-citizens have been voting in the state for decades.
The suit is based on a glitch that allowed non-citizens applying to renew their driver’s license a chance to register to vote.
The legal group is demanding state officials to turn-over records, which could show the severity of the problem.
The information could be critical in the state’s upcoming special election.
However, Pennsylvania officials are refusing to hand over the data.
