While the left is constantly complaining about Russian meddling in the U.S. election, they just gave non-citizens the right in San Francisco to vote in local elections.
So to Democrats Russia interfering with U.S. elections is unacceptable, but allowing foreign nationals to vote in U.S. elections is fine.
ABC 7 News reports the Department of Elections on Monday Issued Voter Registration Forms for non-citizens who are eligible to vote for members of the San Francisco Board of Education in the November 6th, 2018 election.
The measure did pass in 2016 with a close vote of 54 percent to 46 percent after two failed previous attempts.
San Francisco is now the first city in the state to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections and probably won’t be the last.
Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer who represents District 1 said:
“As a parent myself and a former member of the SF Board of Education it is critical that the voices of all parents are at the table particularly those that have historically been denied a voice in the process”
“We want to give immigrants the right to vote,” said Supervisor Norman Yee who represents District 7.”
