Sen. Paul Introduces "Secure the Vote' Amendment


Date: June 17, 2013
Location: Washington, DC

Sen. Rand Paul today introduced the 'Secure the Vote' Amendment to S. 744, which he previously announced on June 5. "Secure the Vote" ensures that individuals on work visas or given status under the bill are not allowed to vote in federal elections until they become citizens. The amendment will provide new procedures to enable states to check that individuals gaining status or a work visa are not illegally registered to vote.

"Not only would this amendment prevent voter fraud, it would also clear up the problem created by today's Supreme Court decision. My amendment requires states to check citizenship before registering people to vote in federal elections," Sen. Paul said.
