Nearly 200,000 Florida Voters May Not Be Citizens
NBC Miami ^ | Friday, May 11, 2012 | Gary Fineout

Posted on 05/11/2012 11:19:28 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Tens of thousands of voters could be dropped from the rolls this election year

Florida officials are now saying that nearly 200,000 registered voters may not be U.S. citizens.

Earlier in the week, state election officials announced they had identified more than 2,600 people who are in Florida legally but ineligible to vote.

The Department of State is asking county election officials to verify the information. Election supervisors are contacting voters and if someone is not a citizen, their name will be dropped from the voter rolls.

But an initial list drawn up by the state — and not widely released — shows that a comparison of voter lists and driver's license information turned up a list of nearly 182,000 people who may not be U.S. citizens.

State officials, however, note that some of those on list may have become citizens after first getting their driver's licenses. Still, the decision to screen the voter rolls for non-citizens could result in tens of thousands voters being dropped in the middle of a critical election year.

President Barack Obama won Florida four years ago, but recent polls have shown that he is neck-and-neck with likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney. The 2000 election between George W. Bush and Al Gore was decided by just 537 votes in the Sunshine State.

This could be the biggest political story of the year if the GOPe doesn’t punt it.

They have been punting it for years, since they are in on the scam to create the New World Order. Anyone notice how often Jeb Bush's name has been popping up as a potential VP? NWO3

Don’t forget to count the snowbirds form Mich., Wisc., etc. who vote absentee in Fla. and vote in person in their real states. I turned a SOB in my town in because of this. Dem, of course.

I would think that if there are nearly 200,000 illegal voters that the people of Florida should DEMAND that ALL of them be dropped from the rolls immediately.

That Bush and the Republican Party did not go after voter fraud in a major way in the wake of the 2000 election was one of the bigger mistakes he made.

Yours is deliberate thread hijacking. It has nothing to do with what I wanted to read about on this thread as a citizen of Florida. Please knock off the disrespectful and thoughtless spam!

There will be a lot less fraud in Michigan this time around. Our voter ID law is fully in force and our new SOS has made vote integrity a primary target and purged thousands of dead and illegal voters from the rolls.

Ditto... Georgia.

The new law here is that as driver’s Licenses come up for renewal, we will have to show up in person to renew and present a birth certificate, social security card and proof of residence.

So not only do we still present our id to vote, but now those ids will be even more accurate and hopefully secure.

While we ran the table in the 2010 elections, I still say that Secretary of State Ruth Johnson was the true gem of that election season in Michigan.

She actively ran against George Soros, ACORN, and the secretary of state project.

When asked if they were citizens, 12 million Florida voters answered, “YES” and the other 200,000 answered, “SI”.

Voter suppression! Voter suppression!

—About damn time. These are huge numbers and should be well publicized. They should be used to rally the GOP base, but the G in GOP must stand for “too Gentlemanly.”

They're not interested in this petty stuff ~ they're the big boys and they have agricultural interests to satisfy! And then there are the entertainers and other crew on the cruise ship lines ~ and the gays.

Catering to the gays and the rich is today's GOPe ambition.

They will.

Does this story leave any doubt in anyone’s mind why the Democrats do not want voter ID?

Same here in Tennessee. It also applies to CCW permits. When I renewed my CCW permit I had to produce my birth certificate or my passport and proof of residence. I really like to use my CCW permit as ID in states like IL and CA—shocks the hell out of them.

I just had to wrap duct tape around my head to keep it from exploding. The Repub's will drop the ball on this, probably. The issue of maintaining proper voter roles should be part of the Repub party platform. Let the whiners, whine. Oh, that's right, we are just a bunch of racists. Let's forget it then.

If a general at war could disarm 200,000 of the enemy troops in one fell swoop, would he not move swiftly to do so? Governor Rick Scott of Florida is moving in that direction, IIRC. But, will it be too little, too late? 200,000 less democrat (illegal) voters is a guaranteed landslide in dozens of precincts. /rant

Motor Voter

Yep. And most of the immigrants who are registered probably figured it must've been OK to do so since the nice lady at the DMV asked them if they would like to register to vote.

I'm a Florida resident and married to a legal immigrant. She's not registered to vote. She could get deported if caught voting in a federal election. She doesn't really care about American politics anyways.

The opyimum way to do this is have every voter register for every election year.

I don’t know about re-registering but it certainly wouldn’t hurt to send out confirmation letters to be sent back. On the other hand, I vote in some election at least once a year which requires ID.

How about making everyone register in person, ID card in hand for every election?

In Michigan our registration becomes invalid if we don't vote in two general election cycles. I'd cut it back to one.

We're effectively re-registering when we vote now anyway. I have to sign in and show my ID which is run through a strip reader that cross checks with the state voter ID rolls.
