Vermont Supreme Court upholds law allowing non-citizens to vote in local elections

It’s not like anyone is really voting anyway.

JTN:
The Vermont Supreme Court ruled in favor of a law permitting noncitizens to vote in local, municipal elections.

In 2021, the state Legislature backed bills to change the local charters of Montpelier and Winooski to permit noncitizen voting in local elections. Though Republican Gov. Phil Scott vetoed those measures, the Democratic Legislature overrode his objections, the Associated Press reported.

The city of Montpelier has nine registered noncitizen voters, per the outlet. In Winooski, 55 noncitizens voted on local issues in an election held in March of last year.

The Republican National Committee had asked the court to declare noncitizen voting in violation of the state constitution, which the court declined to do. “The statute allowing noncitizens to vote in local Montpelier elections does not violate Chapter II, § 42 because that constitutional provision does not apply to local elections,” the court wrote. more here

  2. And so it begins. By 2024 the swing states will probably allow non-citizens to vote in federal elections, and the courts will not stop it. And then no Republican will ever win an election again.

  3. Our citizenship is being made mute. That was the plan all along. We are all going to have to deal with certain issues on a very personal basis. Our government is totally against us.

  4. Biden, earlier this month, signed on to the ‘Declaration of North America’ that some think is a prelude to a North American union.

    Think? It couldn’t be more obvious.
