If they try to register their registration will be invalidated once its known that they are not citizens.
If they try to then vote with an absentee ballot their vote will not be counted once its clear they aren't registered.
This isn't about non-citizens voting in our elections. This is about keeping the poor, elderly, and naturalized citizens from voting.
how do we know if we had any non citizens voting if no proof needs to be shown you are a citizen. it is like asking a blind man if some one turned out the lights.
My city only gave out only 5 j-walking tickets last year does that mean only 5 people j-walked all of last year?
I'm still amused at the concept that there is no election security without displaying your voter ID. We've been doing fine without voter registration or the ID requirement. That being said, my state is going through the somewhat meaningless motion of trying to make ID required for voting. Don't quite know what voter fraud they are going after, but it sure is going to piss off those Native Americans and college students.

Retired State Capitol Cleaning Lady, 93, Blocked from Voting? | Humphrey on the Hill | knoxnews.comMitchell, who was delivered by a midwife in Alabama in 1918, has never had a birth certificate. But when she told that to a driver's license clerk, he suggested she might be an illegal immigrant.
But a spokesman for the House Republican Caucus said Mitchell was given bad information. Brent Leatherwood said even an expired state ID will allow her to vote.
Asked about why Mitchell might have been confused or received incorrect information about the new voter ID law, Leatherwood said only that the provision that allows for the use of state employee IDs is "pretty straightforward."
And before you go skeptical on 'Republican Caucus':

Low and behold, it does appear that at least one state in the Union (mine) does not verify the claim of citizenship on voter registration forms. We simply take your word for it and will prosecute your ass if you are lying.
