Nevada’s Secretary of State blamed the Department of Motor Vehicles registration for adding people to the state voter rolls who were not U.S. Citizens.

Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske told state DMV director, Terri Albertson in a letter Friday evening about her concerns regarding the registrations.

“It has come to our attention that when offering voter registration opportunities to customers, DMV’s employees offer voter registration materials to DMV customers whom they know to be non-citizens based upon their presentation of a Green Card for identification purposes,” Cegavske wrote.

“More specifically, it is our understanding that some DMV employees have been instructed to accept registration materials from all customers, including those who present a Green Card for identification purposes…This practice must cease immediately. Please take appropriate actions, as we have reason to believe that non-citizens have unlawfully registered to vote in Nevada as a direct result of DMV’s practices. Moreover, we now have confirmed that some non-citizens illegally cast votes in the 2016 election.”...

In 1993 President Bill Clinton, with the help of the Democratic Congress, passed the Motor Voter Act, which compelled the state government agencies to offer voter registrations to any eligible individual who applies for or renews a driver’s license or submits an application for public assistance.
