Jones St., Raleigh for a press conference and then to lobby our NC House Representatives and Senators for S630, a Constitutional amendment requiring U.S. Citizenship to be eligible to vote.  (The press conference will also focus on Other election integrity bills and issues such as

  • S630 the Constitutional amendment requiring U.S. Citizenship to be eligible to vote

  • List Maintenance Laws to elimnate non-citizens, duplicates, deceased, and moved off the voter rolls

  • HR770 for Cast Vote Records, audit logs, and other election artifacts for an independent post-election audit

  • Eliminate Same Day Registration that is not subject to the same uniform NVRA procedures that normal voters must endure and is unconstitutional)


This is your chance to let your legislators know that you want this Constitutional Amendment reauiring citizenship to vote on the November 5, 2024 ballot.

FYI on illegals and election integrity


The NC Election Integrity Team (NCEIT) has proposed an amendment to the North Carolina Constitution to assure that only U.S. citizens have the right to vote in North Carolina. Voting is a cornerstone of our Republic.  Most Americans consider voting a right of citizenship.

 

Why is the Biden administration allowing an unprecedented number of Illegal aliens to enter the country? There have been 8.7 million illegal crossings nationwide under the Biden administration. The Biden administration is not enforcing existing laws. They removed policies that reduced the flow of illegal aliens. They are using tax dollars to provide services to illegal aliens which encourages more to come.  They are secretly bring illegal aliens on charter flights into the interior of the U.S. The Biden administration has flown 800,000 illegal aliens into the interior with the Advanced Travel Authorization program. They are funding non-governmental organizations through several federal departments like the Department of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services to facilitate travel for illegal aliens to the “destination of their choice”.  What is behind this push for open borders?

 

We believe these actions are intentional and pose a major threat to a fair election in 2024. Illegal aliens are being brought to destinations across the country to provide an opportunity for illegal aliens to register and vote. Arizona is registering illegals to register to vote using a federal form and allowing them to vote in federal races.

 

We need to protect the rights of U.S. citizens to vote in North Carolina. The NC Constitution currently has vague language of being born in the U.S. or naturalized in the U.S. to be entitled to vote.  The NC General Statutes already specify that only citizens can submit voter registration applications. The proposed Constitutional amendment shown below is needed in North Carolina to make it clear that only U.S. citizens are eligible to vote in NC.

 

S630 SECTION 1. Section 1 of Article VI of the North Carolina Constitution reads as rewritten:

"Section 1. Who may vote.

 "... Constitutional amendment to provide that only a citizen of the United States who is 18 years of age and otherwise possessing the qualifications for voting shall be entitled to vote at any election in this State."
