A new report released by the Texas Secretary of State’s office says that around 58,000 non-U.S. citizens voted in one or more Texas elections in the last 22 years.
Texas Secretary of State David Whitley issued these findings from its voter registration maintenance activities. The office conducted the report with the help of the Texas Department of Public Safety to identify non-U.S. citizens.
Voting without eligibility is a 2nd degree felony in the state of Texas. The secretary’s office, going forward, says that they will work alongside DPS on a monthly basis to evaluate the non-U.S. citizens that register to vote in the state. The office will then notify the county vote registrar so they may take action.
