Statement on Pennsylvania Department of State admitting there are over 11,000 non-citizens registered to vote in Pennsylvania

Wednesday, the Pennsylvania Department of State publicly revealed that there are 11,198 non-citizens registered to vote in Pennsylvania.

In response, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio, made the following statement:

“These 11,198 non-citizen voters must immediately be taken off of Pennsylvania’s voter rolls.

“While Pennsylvania’s Congressional Democrats this week jumped at the ability to support legislation that would weaken voter verification procedures, these revelations are the latest indication that before lawmakers undertake further election reform measures, our current system must be bolstered to ensure integrity befitting the democratic process.”

    As an elected polling official, I’m telling you this is a problem.

    The PA DOS withdrew its objection to producing certain communications between Pedro Cortes and his staff. How does that mean that the PA DOS “publicly revealed” that there are 11,000+ foreign nationals registered to vote? Then your like for this “public revelation” is to a Washington Times article, which is based on a press release by Darryl Metcalfe that, if you read it closely, doesn’t make a lot of sense. So what gives???

    I personally called PA DOS re above issue. I was initially told County election board issue, then I stated no it’s through PA DOS to rectify .I was not treated politely as a PA resident & taxpayer, it was on verge of rudeness . Staff member put me on hold then came back & said would e-mail me response. I received an email from a newspaper article by AP writer , that since I don’t subscribe to newspaper couldn’t read it ,3rd party kind enough to forward content . I understand now there are more safe guards re citizenship ,not just using MVA or ID to vote, but what about those non citizens on books? The more I investigate issue more frustrating it becomes to me ,& why the American people not concerned ? If happened here in PA then how many other states?
