Non-Citizen Voters in Florida

There’s much speculation and debate over whether non-citizens and others who are ineligible vote in U.S. elections, but relatively few documented instances.    That makes this report by a local television station in Fort Myers, Florida all the more significant.  The station’s investigation uncovered nearly one hundred non-citizens who were registered to vote, and several admitted to have cast ballots.  The non-citizen voters were discovered because they said to be excused from jury service due to their lack of citizenship.  The question now is whether this report is symptomatic of a larger problem in Florida, if not elsewhere, or a relatively isolated problem.
