Foundation that targets voting by non-citizens claims Pa. is violating federal voter registration law


Two months after losing one federal court battle, a private foundation has launched another seeking to force Pennsylvania officials to release information on what they are doing to keep non-citizens from voting in state and federal elections.

The Indianapolis, Indiana-based Public Interest Legal Foundation claims in its newly-filed U.S. Middle District Court suit that the state Department of State is violating the National Voter Registration Act by refusing to provide the information it seeks.

The group, which is involved in immigrant rights disputes nationwide, contends it needs the information on Pennsylvania’s efforts to combat voting by non-citizens to promote its mission to “keep voter rolls free of ineligible registrants.”

Testimony given by state officials during public hearings has shown there is a problem and that efforts are being made to ensure non-citizens aren’t making it onto the state’s voter rolls and into its voting booths, the foundation contends.
