“What I found is we had 1,634 that were never put on the voter rolls, they were in the pending status, because they couldn’t prove their citizenship,” said Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said his office is investigating ballot harvesting and the registration of noncitizens to vote, both of which he suggests may have been orchestrated by third-party organizations.

His office did a citizenship audit of Georgia’s voter rolls and found more than 1,600 noncitizens who tried registering to vote, Raffensperger told the John Solomon Reports podcast Tuesday.

“[W]hat I found is we had 1,634 that were never put on the voter rolls, they were in the pending status, because they couldn’t prove their citizenship,” he explained. “That’s a felony in Georgia to even attempt to register if you’re a noncitizen. And that’s a one to 10-year prison term, and up to a $100,000 fine.”

Raffensperger said his office sent the information they found to the state attorney general and local district attorneys, who will interview those who couldn’t prove their citizenship and ask them: “Did you do this on your own free will? Or were you put up by it by some third-party organization?”

Through these investigations, Raffensperger said, that they will find out if there is “an organization that’s been really attempting to get noncitizens on the voter rolls in Georgia.”

He noted that his office is currently defending state law that requires ID and citizenship checks for voters against Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight Action, Inc. group, which is suing Georgia, claiming that the law violates the U.S. Constitution and the Voting Rights Act.

“[W]hen Stacey Abrams ran for governor four years ago, she talked about the blue wave,” Raffensperger recalled, “and she said, ‘That’s the people who are documented and undocumented,’ i.e., that means the noncitizens … she wanted them to be able to vote in our elections, and absolutely not. I’ve been pushing back on that. I think that’s an incredibly critical issue, not just for us here in Georgia, but for the entire country. Only American citizens should vote.”

The secretary of state also addressed ballot harvesting, explaining how it can lead to voters being coerced to cast their ballots for certain candidates.

“I think that we want people to freely express their choice when they vote, but you can end up with that whole process of voter coercion,” Raffensperger said. “Next thing you know, that’s someone that owns a company, he’s actually trying to coerce people and who they should vote for. Or if you’re in a union situation, then the union boss is coercing you and who to vote.

“We want people to make that free will decision because when people make that free will decision, then their voice is really truly heard. And so that’s why it’s very important. We want people to vote without any attempt of coe…
