Texas Secretary of State David Whitley Announces Widespread Voter Fraud in 2018
95,000 Non-Citizen Legal Immigrants Registered, 58,000 Voted in One or More Elections
AUSTIN, TX – Today, Texas Secretary of State David Whitley announced the results of a year long investigation into voter fraud. He stated they have identified 95,000 non-citizens who are currently registered to vote in the state of Texas – 58,000 of which have voted in one or more election. Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey commented:
“We applaud the efforts by the office of the Texas Secretary of State to expose this widespread voter fraud. Secretary of State David Whitley’s announcement provides undeniable proof that voter fraud has been significant – even in Texas. Identifying ineligible registrations and removing them from the voter rolls is the first step toward restoring integrity to our electoral process. No doubt these voters affected election results in 2018. We can not afford voter fraud in 2020 and must stop this abuse now. It is a crime and it is damaging to our republic. We ask the Legislature to consider what additional changes may be needed to reduce potential voter fraud and protect the right to vote for all Texas citizens.”
The Texas Secretary of State’s office announced the identification of 95,000 non-citizens who were on the voter rolls today just before 2:00 p.m. The Republican Party of Texas will continue to work with legislators during the 86th Legislative Session to create and pass legislation to secure the ballot box.
