OH Report: 126 Non-Citizen Voters Since 2011

Written by

A new report released Monday shows since Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted took office in 2011, 821 non-citizen voters have been identified in Ohio, and 126 of them have actually voted in elections. 

Eighty-two of these non-citizen voters cast ballots in one election alone. 

Husted said that those who have illegally cast ballots in elections have been or will be referred to law enforcement. As for those who are illegally registered, but haven't voted, they will be notified and given 30 days to cancel their registrations or face penalties under the state law. 

Husted reinforced that voter fraud in the state is rare. There are nearly 7.9 million registered voters in Ohio, with roughly 5.6 million of them casting ballots in the last election.
