Foreign Nationals on Voter Rolls


Attorney General Eric Holder is trying to overturn voter ID laws in several states because he says there is no evidence of voter fraud. The Miami Herald has found evidence to the contrary.

Nearly 2,700 potential non-U.S. citizens are registered to vote in Florida and some could have been unlawfully casting ballots for years, according to a Miami Herald-CBS4 analysis of elections data.

The bulk of the potential non-citizen voters are in Florida’s largest county, Miami-Dade, where the elections supervisor is combing through a list of nearly 2,000 names and contacting them.

An analysis of a partial list of 350 names in Miami-Dade showed that about 104 have cast ballots going as far back as 1996.
