Non-Citizens Are Illegally Registering to Vote Ahead of November Elections, Study Finds


by Frank Bergman, Slay News:

A new study has found that a shocking number of non-citizens have registered to vote in America’s elections ahead of the critical November presidential race.

The study, published by Just Facts, is based on the latest available data and an enhanced version of a stress-tested methodology from a scholarly journal.

Researchers found that about 10 percent to 27 percent of non-citizen adults living in the U.S. are now illegally registered to vote.


The U.S. Census recorded more than 19 million adult non-citizens living in the U.S. during 2022.

Given their voter registration rates, this means that about two million to five million of them are illegally registered to vote.

These figures are potentially high enough to overturn the will of the American people in major elections, including congressional seats and the presidency.

In 2014, the academic journal Electoral Studies published a groundbreaking study by three scholars who estimated how frequently non-citizens were illegally voting.

Based on data from the 2008 presidential and congressional elections, the study found that:

  • “roughly one-quarter of non-citizens” in the U.S. “were likely registered to vote;”
  • “6.4 percent of non-citizens actually voted;”
  • 81.8 percent of them “reported voting for Barack Obama;” and
  • illegal votes cast by non-citizens “likely” changed “important election outcomes” in favor of Democrats, “including Electoral College votes” and a “pivotal” U.S. Senate race that enabled Democrats to pass Obamacare.

The study’s voter registration rate was estimated with data from two key sources:

  1. A national survey in which 14.8 percent of non-citizens admitted that they were registered to vote.
  2. A database of registered voters reveals what portion of the surveyed non-citizens “were in fact registered” even though “they claimed not to be registered.”

By combining these data, the author’s “best” estimate was that 25.1 percent of non-citizens were illegally registered to vote.

The authors calculated voter turnout with the same datasets.

However, their methodology yielded a best estimate that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008.

This figure is lower than the 8.0 percent of non-citizens who stated “I definitely voted” and explicitly named the candidate they voted for.
