SPRINGFIELD - With all the talk about potential election fraud leading up to November 8th, the fact that the Illinois General Assembly is opening the door to more problems seems almost incomprehensible, but that's what's going on, says Senator Dan McConchie.
The Hawthorn Woods lawmaker says the automatic voter registration legislation that received enough votes in the Senate to override the Governor’s veto would create a situation where the government leads non-citizens to believe they are legally allowed to vote.
“This legislation is very problematic,” said McConchie. “Under this proposal, non-citizens will be automatically registered to vote and then perhaps later removed from the rolls. If a non-citizen is registered and the state fails to remove that person in a timely fashion, they will get a voter card in the mail and likely believe they can legally vote. And if they do vote, they will be committing a felony."
