Trampling The Constitution: Why Are Non-Citizens Even Allowed To Vote?

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has repeated his attempt to press the state Legislature to amend the Georgia Constitution to clarify only U.S. citizens can vote in the state.

Raffensperger signed a request Thursday calling for the constitutional amendment. The petition was authored by Americans for Citizen Voting, a national nonprofit supporting citizen-only voting, to bring awareness to the issue.

Outside of a constitutional convention, the only way to amend the Georgia Constitution is by lawmakers introducing an amendment and approving it by a two-thirds vote in both chambers. The amendment then would need to be approved by Georgia voters.
