Campaign solicits foreigners to register to vote
A nationwide voter-registration effort encouraging participation by minorities effectively is encouraging noncitizens to vote.
The Washington, D.C.-based Voter Participation Center is using large mailing lists from commercial and nonprofit organizations to send voter registration forms to people they believe have been underrepresented in the political process.
The VPC’s website openly says its focus is on minority women and the unmarried.
“The mission of the VPC is to boost the civic engagement of unmarried women, people of color and 18-29 year olds – the three demographic groups who comprise the Rising American Electorate,” the VPC says.
