Assemblyman Travis Allen Calls for DMV Audit Over California Law that Could Register Non-Citizens to Vote

SACRAMENTO -  Assemblyman Travis Allen announced that he is requesting a formal audit of the DMV after reports broke of potential illegal voting fraud as the State of California implements the new Motor Voter Law, under which the DMV automatically registers people to vote when they obtain or renew a driver's license - unless they opt-out. He pointed out that a million driver's licenses have been issued to illegal immigrants in the past three years.

"Californians don't believe for one second that an inefficient state bureaucracy like the DMV has put together a fraud-proof system to prevent Motor Voter from registering illegal immigrants to vote," said Allen. "California's citizens deserve to know that they have fair and honest elections. That is why I am calling for a formal audit of the DMV."
