DMV Finds Another 1,500 People It Wrongly Registered to Vote, Among Them Non-Citizens

Randall Marquis has lived in California for 31 years, but he knew it was a mistake when he received a notice last month that said he was newly registered to vote. He may have a state driver’s license, but he’s a citizen of Canada.

“When I saw that card, I just threw it out,” Marquis said. “I know I’m not going to vote. I’m not allowed to vote, it’s stupid that I should be registered to vote.”

The Newport Beach resident, who has a green card and is married to a U.S. citizen, was one of some 1,500 people who the California Department of Motor Vehicles said on Monday were wrongly registered to vote between late April and late September. These errors, which included other non-citizens, are in addition to the roughly 23,000 registration mistakes disclosed by the DMV last month.

MD needs to review theirs also, since they register to vote when given Drivers License / MD ID

No voter fraud in the U.S...right!
Then how are these people, who did not register to vote, get registered to begin with? What it just magically happens because you have a state drivers license or I'd? POOF! You are now a registered voter as a...and what party do these magical registrations get assigned to? Things that make you go hhhmmm?
