Texas Dems under investigation after sending voting applications with citizenship box pre-checked to non-citizens
The Texas Democratic Party is under investigation after being accused of sending out voter-registration applications to non-citizens with the citizenship box already checked “Yes.”
The possible violation was first raised Thursday by the Public Interest Legal Foundation(PILF), a nonprofit specializing in election integrity, which alerted both state and federal authorities.
Following the reports of the alleged violation, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the issue is “being investigated” and “there will be serious consequences” if confirmed.
“A complaint says the Texas Democratic Party asked noncitizens to register to vote, sending applications with citizenship box pre-checked. This is being investigated. If true there will be serious consequences,” he wrote in a tweet.
