Md. Elections Official: Noncitizens May be Voting

Posted:
FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - A state elections official says it's possible that some non-U.S. citizens are voting in Maryland.

Voter Registration Director Mary Cramer Wagner said that state and local election boards have no system for verifying the citizenship of voter registration applicants.

The issue was raised in a lawsuit filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore by vote-fraud activists. They say they found evidence that noncitizens are registered to vote in Frederick County. They say their allegation is based on a comparison of voter registration records and lists of people excused from jury duty because they declared they were not U.S. citizens.

The state and county election boards face a Thursday deadline for responding to the lawsuit. It seeks an order purging noncitizens from the voter rolls.
