Colorado Secretary of State Finds 5,000 Non-citizens Voted in Colorado in 2010

From The Hill:
"Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler, a Republican, told the panel that his department’s study identified nearly 12,000 people who were not citizens but were still registered to vote in Colorado. Of those non-citizen registered voters, nearly 5,000 took part in the 2010 general election in which Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet narrowly defeated Republican John Buck.

Colorado conducted the study by comparing the state’s voter registration database with driver’s license records. “We know we have a problem here. We don’t know the size of it,” Gessler said in testimony to Administration’s Elections subcommittee. 

He told Harper that Colorado would look to create a registration system that would allow his department to ask that some people provide proof of their citizenship in writing."
From D.R. at DB: "Spokesmen for ACORN, La Raza, MEChA and the SEIU could not be reached for comment at press time."

"Topeka — Kansas is expected to start requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls next year after a bill imposing the new rule won final approval Tuesday from the state Legislature.

The House voted 111-11 to accept the Senate’s version of legislation proposed by Secretary of State Kris Kobach as a way to fight potential election fraud. The measure goes next to Gov. Sam Brownback, who is expected to sign it.

The measure also includes Kobach’s proposal to require people who register for the first time to vote in Kansas to provide a birth certificate, passport or other proof of U.S. citizenship to election officials. But the bill delays that requirement until 2013, a year later than Kobach wanted."
Other states which either have voter photo ID or are strengthening existing ID laws are North Carolina, Missouri, Texas, Tennessee, South Carolina, Alabama, Arkansas, Ohio, Georgia, Indiana.

Illegal aliens and non-citizens, who mainly vote democrat, hardest hit.

Of course, the usual race pimp, democrat lackeys are calling 'foul', claiming Republicans hate old people, minorities and dogs, and that such ID requirements will disenfranchise their illegal voting blocs.
