A new bill that would make it possible for noncitizens to vote in municipal elections is going through Rhode Island’s system.
Another New England state, Vermont, is currently trying to do the same thing.
When you look at these policy proposals, the situation on the southern border begins to make more sense. Democrats seem to be trying to outnumber people who will vote against them.

Rhode Island bill would open elections to illegal aliens, Democrats’ latest push for noncitizen voting
Democrats in the Rhode Island General Assembly have introduced legislation that, if passed, would give locals the power to give non-US citizens the right to vote in municipal elections. The measure marks the latest attempt by the left to allow foreigners, and in this case, even illegal immigrants, to influence the US electoral process.
Under the new bill (H 5461), cities and towns would “allow all residents of the municipality to vote for municipal officeholders in municipal elections, regardless of the resident’s immigration status.”
The measure also states that local boards of canvassers must coordinate with Rhode Island’s Secretary of State and Board of Elections to “develop forms and instructions to carry out the provisions” of the new law, as well as any necessary rules and regulations. To ensure that any ballots are reserved for municipal officeholders only and are kept separate from the ballot [citizen] Voters … and counted separately for transmission to the Election Board.”
The law does not specify what constitutes proof of residence.
Allowing non-citizens to vote in municipal elections would be the first step, testing.
It’s clear the Democrats aren’t even American at this point…🇺🇸👉🏴☠️
The Democratic Party is something foreign to the United States in 2023. They are intruding into our own government, pushing to create an illegal alien voting base. Once never ends… https://t.co/d0Uull1WX9
