CORRECTION NOTICE: A previously published version of this article omitted information that the legislation in New York specifically prohibits the DMV from sending data from any noncitizen or undocumented immigrant for the purposes of voter registration in Section 2 paragraph 5.
All residents including non-citizens and illegal aliens in New York State can now apply for a driver’s license.
The “Green Light Law” is the official name of the law that Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed and recently took effect.
Legislation has now been passed by New York State Senate Democrats to automatically register to people to vote.
The way it works is that all residents who obtain driver’s licenses through the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will be automatically registered to vote.
Illegal aliens and non-citizens would need to check the “opt-out” box before complete the application for a driver’s license. However, the legislation specifically prohibits the DMV from sending data from any noncitizen or undocumented immigrant for the purposes of voter registration in Section 2 paragraph 5.
This would keep them off the state voter rolls.
New York Democrats pitched the legislation as an effort to “reduce the incidence of voter registration fraud and voting fraud,” as well as to “prevent erroneous disfranchisement of eligible citizens, promote greater participation of eligible voters in elections.”

Currently in New York, American citizens only need a driver’s license to register to vote, and although applicants are required to swear that they are eligible to vote, state election officials have previously admitted that “it’s basically an honor system.”

In June of last year, New York Republicans warned Breitbart News that the ultimate goal of Democrats in the state is to register all noncitizens and illegal aliens to vote in state and federal elections.
In California, where illegal aliens are allowed to obtain driver’s licenses as well, voter fraud has become common across the state.
