Notices are in the mail (I received mine yesterday) telling Colorado’s citizens that if unaffiliated registered voters (I’m one of them) wish to cast ballots in the upcoming June 28 primary senatorial election they must re-register as an affiliate of either the Democrat or Republican party. We Coloradans had no opportunity to participate in the primary season Presidential caucus/straw poll this year, because the State GOP decided not to have one. But I digress.
So, I read my form letter and noticed that if I have a Colorado Driver’s License or a state-issued ID card I am eligible to register as a voter, either via a mail-in form or online.
I did a double take on that little tidbit.
All I need is a driver’s license? My curiosity piqued, I clicked on the mail-in registration form icon, just to see what there was to see. Here’s link to the Colorado PDF mail-in form in English. And here it is in Spanish.
Not only can a non-citizen (legal or illegal) in Colorado get a driver’s license, there are hundreds, if not thousands, if not millions of non-citizens (legal and illegal) throughout the United States who are now doing just that.
There is no proof of citizenship required to subsequently register as a voter. All you need is that driver’s license or a state-issued ID card.
No. I’m not kidding. I wish I were kidding.
All one has to do is enter the requisite personal information on the registration form – and one’s driver’s license or state ID number. Then, all one has to do is to is to sign his name (or make a witnessed mark) in section 9, affirming under penalty of law that he is a citizen. Check it out.
Voila! We have a brand new registered voter who the statistics say will in all likelihood cast his vote for the Democrats.
No proof of citizenship required.
I know. I know. Yes – falsification of qualifications is a misdemeanor in Colorado. But, come on, who is going to check into the millions of registration forms filed throughout the USA in order to verify the citizenship affirmations of every single registered voter? Who is going to do that? The time and manpower required for the background investigations would be beyond astronomical. The task would require uncountable years to accomplish.
By the time millions of citizenship claims are verified or dispelled by background checks for the 2016 election we’ll be well into the 2024 campaign – or far beyond that. And what difference, at that point, will it make?So, you cast your ballot. I’ll cast mine. Millions of illegal aliens will cast theirs. And we’ll soon enough see if we still have a country after it’s over.
