Gessler Steps Up Efforts To Prevent Non-Citizens From Voting

DENVER (CBS4) – Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler is stepping up his efforts to prevent non-American citizens from voting.

Gessler has asked the Department of Homeland Security to give his office the citizenship status of thousands of registered voters.

The Denver Post reports that 4,500 people provided a non-citizen document when they applied for a driver’s license and then registered to vote.

Gessler says he’s trying to enforce voting laws.

Critics say the Republican secretary is trying to stop potentially Democratic voters from going to the polls during this election year.

    What burns me up is that the ….”Critics say the Republican secretary is trying to stop potentially Democratic voters from going to the polls during this election year”

    No; thay are illegal aliens from another country and do not have the right to vote in our country….furthermore; they are breaking the law by even trying to vote. It makes good sence to make sure that the people voting in our elections are US Citizens. Seems simple to me.

      They are always trying to change the true focus of preventing illegals from voting. They will do anythng and is is truly shameful.

    Why do Democrats find this so difficult?
    Does it come from decades, maybe centuries of registering dead voters?
    Does it come from having their people register in many different precincts?
    Or are they just plain dishonest?

    Well the law is the law no matter what party you are afilliated with. You wouldn’t go into the Denver Country Club if you were not a member and didn’t pay your dues. I find it amazing that as many as 4500 (supposidly) had registered to vote illegally. This shows me how much they want to become citizens, what other reason could there be? Know any?
