Dozens of ineligible aliens who have been removed from the voter rolls in the city of Philadelphia, Pa., have cast ballots in recent elections, according to a new report from an election watchdog group.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation, an Indiana-based nonprofit that litigates to protect election integrity, released a reporton Tuesday detailing voter rolls in Philadelphia. The information was collected from public records requests made through the National Voter Registration Act.
The group found that from 2013 to 2015, 86 registrations were cancelled in Philadelphia because the registrant was not a United States citizen. Of the cancelled registrants, 40 aliens from the city have voted in at least one election, the report stated.
