Potentially Thousands of Illegal Voters in Pennsylvania


The Pennsylvania secretary of state’s office recently sent out 2.5 million postcards to licensed drivers who were not registered to vote, inviting them to sign up in time for the November election. Trouble is, some of those drivers are not American citizens.

State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, a Butler County Republican who chairs the State Government Committee, said the testimony last week suggests serious problems with the state's voter registration system. "There's certainly the potential for hundreds, if not thousands, of foreigners here legally and illegally to be on our voter rolls, and a certain percentage who are casting ballots," he told LifeZette. "We've got a lot of integrity issues that need to be addressed."

Motor-Voter Faulted Metcalfe said neither ERIC nor state officials ever told legislators that sending notices to non-voters would be a condition of joining the consortium. He said it exposes the state to the possibility — and now proven fact — that people could be illegally registered through fraud or error.

The National Voter Registration Act of 1993, better known as the motor-voter law, requires everyone applying for a driver's license to be offered a chance to register to vote. He said there is no way to flag fraudulent or even mistaken applications.

"You can see where someone whose first language is not English might be confused as they go through the prompts," Metcalfe said.
