• ALL IT TAKES FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS TO VOTE IS A UTILITY BILL - Voter Fraud in California: a Way of Life

    Despite the fact that there are 2.6 million illegal immigrants in California, no proof of citizenship is required to for voter registration and presenting a utility bill is all the identification needed at the polling place.

    To complicate matters, the utility bill is only required if a voter does not give the last four digits of his or her social security number, a Driver's License or State ID card number when initially registering. If a new voter cannot provide even a ghost of a social security number, county officials must assign that voter a registration number. This is the only voter that must show a utility bill as proof of identification. However, after this first vote, the ballot is granted in perpetuity without identification. In essence, anyone who feels that they belong in California can vote in our national elections.

    How big might this problem be? Statistics coming from the California Secretary of State put the number of eligible voters at about 64% of the total population. Applying this to the 2.6 million illegal immigrant population means that almost 1.7 million illegal immigrants could easily avail themselves of California polls during a national election.

    Is there any evidence that anything like 1.7 million votes might have been placed illegally in previous elections? The sudden demise of the Republican Party after Governor Wilson's support for Proposition 187 forms an anecdotal background. Did the Democrats and the Hispanic Caucus panic? Could some have organized an ACORN-like voter registration drive, signing up Hispanics like crazy and purposely looking the other way when picture identifications could not be found?

    One way to see the trend towards new voter registration is by comparing the number of registered voters sixty days before the election to the number of registered voters 30 and fifteen days before the election. The increase between these two dates MUST be, in total, the number of new voter registrations during those months. Certainly, the last months before an election provide the best backdrop for new registrations, but the new registrations below are just a fraction of the yearly total. Remember, in California this is especially important because only first time voters are required to show identification, and only if those voters did not show a picture I.D. when registering at the DMV or when registering online. The charts below show just a hint of how large this problem could be:

    New voter registration shows the potential for immigrants, who are here perhaps a shorter time than others, to be recruited to vote in a national election. Of course, there is no reason an illegal immigrant couldn't be registered well before the last sixty days of an election. There is also no reason that an illegal immigrant would not vote again and again many years after he or she first registered to vote. Our state senators come from urban enclaves where there may be as many as 1.7 million illegal votes cast each year. Perhaps Californians really want California style hand-outs and regulations for the rest of the nation, but perhaps we don't.

    For Californians the real problem is that the electoral maps amplify slight differences in the final vote. Urban areas dominate the rural districts. Within the sate legislature, safe districts with, let's say, fifty thousand illegal voters, can easily defeat the legal majority again and again. The representative from this safe district can become an uncompromising supporter of licenses for illegal immigrants, tuition grants for illegals, and even special accommodations for impounded vehicles for owners who cannot produce a legal Driver's License. Worse, these blatant gratuities to the illegal immigrant voting block are all in return for the support of higher taxes and the absolutely inane regulatory environment that has ruined the state. Producers are fleeing while mobs of welfare recipients pour in. In fact, the illegal immigrant population is filled with producers, and, in general, producers want nothing of this mayhem. Sadly, the illegals are being exploited again. This time the migrants arenít working in the grape fields for trifles. This time illegals are being asked for their souls in return for false promises that pay nothing.
