4% of Registered Voters Report As Non-Citizens
A week ago, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the 9th Circuit to allow the voter identification provision of Proposition 200 to be enforced in the upcoming election. During the period of the 9th Circuit's stay of the provision, concerns of voting fraud surfaced. Now it seems Cochise County workers are reporting that of 12,000 jury summons sent to registered voters, 500 recipients called back to say they could not serve because they are not citizens. Assuming a random sample, that's over 4% of registered voters that are not U.S. citizens—an interesting report given the issues in this year's election.
