On Monday, the New York Supreme Court found that a law that allowed noncitizen residents to vote in municipal elections is illegal.
The law originally passed by the New York City council last year created a class of voters called “municipal voters,” comprised of non-citizens who reside in the city for at least 30 days before an election and register or pre-register to vote.
Fox News reports:
“The New York State Constitution explicitly lays the foundation for ascertaining that only proper citizens retain the right to voter privileges,” Richmond County Supreme Court Judge Ralph Porzio said in the court’s ruling. “It is this Court’s belief that by not expressly including non-citizens in the New York State Constitution, it was the intent of the framers for non-citizens to be omitted.”
The bill first became law automatically after former Mayor Bill de Blasio and current Mayor Eric Adams both declined to either sign or veto it.
